Good afternoon everyone,
I’ve just popped in to give an update on the F2F block swap organised by Kate.
August is the month we are all sending three blocks to Susan in the USA. She has already acknowledged receipt of my blocks so it is OK to show you photos here now. Susan requested red and white or blue and white or some of each. Her colour choice was right up my street.
Before I decided which patterns to make I crawled all over Susan’s blog, trying to get an idea of the type of blocks and fabrics she would like. I noticed that she makes a lot of lovely stars and mostly with small prints 🙂 So, it was an easy choice for me.
I hadn’t made the “star in a star” block before these ones but I know I’m going to make a lot more. I wouldn’t say it was an easy block to make but there was a lot of Happy Dancing going on in my sewing room as I made them. When they fit together well, it’s magical 🙂
From what I could gather, Susan has a very similar taste in blocks to me. I love symmetry and coordinating fabrics too. I also prefer solids, small prints, marbles or blenders. Susan wrote to tell me she likes them and that made me very happy too 🙂 I’m sure she’ll make something rather splendid when she receives all of her packages from the other swappers.
It’s time to get on with the blocks for Miss September now. I haven’t chosen which blocks yet but I’m going to be snooping around Sue’s blog for ideas very soon!
