Obama blocks

Last year, I joined a group of quilters online that are in the (very long, slow) process of making blocks for a quilt for the Obamas.  It will take years to get this quilt done.  It was planned that way.

Here are my first 6 blocks done:

Names of blocks:


Kimono with Obi

Blackberry Phone


Left and Right

The Pace of Congress

    I particularly like the way you represented the pace of Congress.

    I think I like your left and right block the best. It represents to me that he is the President … which includes both left and right “leaners”.

    What an interesting idea? Are you trying to document the entire administration? I’m assuming you are going to keep it when you’re done.

      A group of us are making a quilt to give the Obama family after Pres. Obama leaves office. The blocks will go in that quilt.
      YOUR idea to make one to document the administration and keep it is fabulous! If I had that much time, I would do that.
