Canadian Stars

Maria from Canada is my August partner, and although I have not heard from her, I still got myself busy and made her blocks.

Maria requested Star blocks in white or off white, blues and yellow. 
I certainly hope that these two fit the bill.  The yellow fabric (border of star on left)  is some of the oldest in my stash and featured in the first queen bed quilt that I ever made.

Tropical sail boats

I had a huge pile of mail when I arrived home on Friday and one of them was this lovely squishy parcel from Chantell.  This was Chantells first attempt at paper piecing and she did an amazing job.

I love the tropical feel to the boats with the fabric that she used.

August swap partners

I have just completed the mail out of partners for August and welcome Traci and Maxine doing their first swap with us this month, and thank Janet for being my double swap queen.

Its interesting for me to note that we have 23 members in this little sister group to QBSA, and of those 23 members only 10 of them are Australian.  We have 5 USA members,  5 Canadians and 1 each from The Netherlands, Portugal, and New Zealand meaning that it is almost as likely that your partner could be from the same country as you as it is that they will be from Australia.
