Pizza Box Sampler Quilt finish

I shared back in January about the pizza box challenge we had in one of the guilds I was a part of. Each member of the exchange was given a pizza box. We could chose what to put in the box, either a pattern or fabric or both and as the box was passed around, each person added something to the box following the instructions given.

 I put in a piece of blue fabric that was to be used in each of the blocks with instructions to build a 12.5" block of their choice.

 When I got my box back, I had 8 different blocks made by my quilting friends and a little fabric left over.

 I added 8 more blocks and a border fabric to make this quilt. I love that it includes blocks that are completely different from any I've made and to see the creativity of others.

 It was sent to my friend Marie from Blueberry Hill Quilts (in High River, Alberta) for quilting and she chose a great all-over design that gives a great quilted texture to this piece.

 The flannel back will just get softer with use and washing. This quilt will be a heirloom that will last for many years!

I love working on projects that involve multiple people. What are you working on today?
