Mixed blocks to New Zealand

My partner this month is Lorraine in New Zealand and her request is any block in any colour.  I decided to make the cute Cedar tree block as it show cases two colours evenly.

I then rummaged through my fabrics to find some fresh  spring coloured prints to make them with and here is what I came up with.  I have also made Lorraine one of my selvidge book marks to pop in the parcel

Hi Ladies

We have 22 members in the group, with 21 swapping this month.  A big thanks to Jen for doing a double swap this month with the odd number of ladies joining in the fun for September.

Remember to please let your partner know when your blocks have arrived, its common courtesy.

September marks the start of Spring in Australia,

Happy sewing everyone, Sue

My First 6" Blocks I made for Anna

These fall colors were a great treat to do for Anna.  Our trees here in North Carolina USA are just starting to change and the tempatures are starting to fall.  I am excited since I spend more time in my sewing room when the tempatures start getting cooler.

Sail boats

Here are my two sail boats for Sue. These were my first real attempt at paper piecing so quite a challenge for me but I think they turned out fairly well.
