"You-tastic" Quilt--Going Global!

"If you leave....take this quilt block with you."

I'm participating in the "Quilt Around the World II" swap with 25 quilters from across the globe. Each member makes a starter block and then we send that block along the address loop. Each person then makes a complimentary block to add to the starter block and forwards the package to the next person. At the end of the cycle, all members should receive 25 blocks in their color/theme from group members across the globe.

Pretty cool, no?

My starter block is pictured above and my hope is that everyone will make a scrappy "personality" block. The fabrics, colors, and style are up to each individual, but I'm requesting that somewhere in the block they include a piece of fabric that says something about the crafter. 

For example, in my block I used a cassette tape. I love 80s teen movies, especially those that John Hughes had a hand in. This block is a tribute to that aspect of my personality.

I'm calling this the "You-tastic" Quilt and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Stay tuned!
