Pizza Boxes and Crumby Kisses

Tomorrow is the last official Guild meeting for the season and it is going to be a really fun one! We have the usual social sew in the morning and then we will have a potluck lunch afterward. At this meeting all of the participants in the Pizza Box Challenge will submit their final boxes. Each participant will have their name entered into a draw and we will each go home with one of the boxes. The boxes contain nine blocks that are relevant to the theme for each particular box and many of the blocks are very creative and quite beautiful.

I just finished making my block (I know...I am always last minute!) and I think it turned out really cute. I got the paper-piecing pattern from here - such a great resource. The theme of my box this month was 'What is your Game?' and as you can see I chose Pacman.

As an extra this month, we were required to baste all of the blocks in the box together so that they can be hung up during the meeting and all of the members can see how creative each of the participants were with their blocks.

On another note, I have been working away on my crumb quilt and am making some progress. It does take quite a bit of time to make crumb blocks. It also seems to take a lot of time to make the stitch and flip sections as well. I have been double sewing the corners to make bonus triangles but I don't think they are all turning out the same size. :(  In any case I am sure I will be able to find a way to use them up as well.

Love the Pacman. Great job on the crumb blocks too. Funny that they don't all finish at the same size. Oh well, a little trim and they'll be as good as the others. ;^)

Pizza Box Quilts! Haven't heard that one in awhile. Love the game theme and your block is great. Used to love paceman! I'll be hearing the audio from it now, all day!
