Blocks from Jen

I have to apologize for not posting these blocks earlier.  They've been sitting on my desk for over a week.  Jen from PA made these wonderful bright blocks.  I just love the fussy cut corners on these Birds In The Air blocks.  Thank you so very much, Jen!!!!

Autumn blocks for Anna

Anna in the Netherlands is my partner this month and she has requested any autumn toned blocks in a 9 patch style.  I had some lovely acorn fabric left over from my Henriette's quilt, so perfect for an autumn toned block.  I will pop them into the post this week, I do hope Anna likes them

From Coralie in Canada

My lovely blocks arrived in the mail today all the way from Canada.  Thanks Coralie, they will fit in with my project perfectly.  I think I need to take another look at this quilt, as I have all the centre blocks and must be getting close to having enough border stars.  Almost time to put my thinking cap on for a new project.
