Baggie Bingo!

Speaking of blocks (see my lengthy post from earlier today!), I've been playing in the monthy "Baggie Bingo" block swap hosted by Tracy in the Mini Quilt in a Bag group on Flickr. The premise is simple: each month, you opt in to a "raffle" of sorts. Everyone that's participating makes a single, 5.5" block. At the end of the month, someone's name is drawn at random to win all of the month's blocks, and everyone sends them to the winner.

5.5" blocks ... seriously, how much easier can you get?

Here's what I made for May:


LOVE that Red Letter Day! Unfortunately, it finished out at 5" square ... a bit too small. So I kept it, and made this one in its place:


And guess what? I just found out that I won June's raffle! Stay tuned for pics of all the blocks that I receive ...
