Leenas Scrappy blocks

Robyn requested for any scrappy blocks, with any colours with a touch of blue. This is a great opportunity to use up my scraps which is never ending. Hopefully these blocks will be okay.

2 swaps done and dusted

With an odd number of members this month I took up the challenge of 2 swaps in the 6 inch group.

My first partner Larissa is saving pin wheels so I had fun playing around with my new foundation piecing skills to make a couple of pin wheels with a twist.  Larissa was looking for brights, I certainly think these are bright enough.

 My second partner for the month is new member Janet from Canada - who requested Cathy's campfire in reds, oranges and yellows.  I used some batik fabric (in one of the blocks) as it looked like flames to me.  I hope the Canadian postal strike is over and these find there way to you soon.

I had fun making blocks for both of these swaps - as they are all blocks I have never made before.  This is what I love most about swapping.  You get to make blocks you have never done before is colours that are out of your normal scope or style.

from one Sue to another Sue

The lovely post man delivered my 2 star blocks from Sue on Friday.  I am saving 6 and 12 inch blocks in blue and red to make a picnic quilt for summer.  Its lovely when you get one block of each colour.

From Leena to Cheryl M

I Made Cheryl her 'Liberty Block' and it was done in tye-dye fabrics as I couldn't get a hold of batiks (my apologise). Hopefully it will blend in with her other lovely Blocks.

Pretty stars

Cheryl M was my partner for May, and how lucky am I to receive 4 beautiful stars.  Cheryl wrote in her card that she could not decide to make me red or blue so she did both.

I cant pick a favourite, I love the embroidered hearts on the red ones, quite unique, and the funky centre print of the blue stars is fabulous.  Thanks Cheryl you did a great job spoiling me.
