F2F Parcels 1 and 2

Hi everyone,

Miss November here. Yes, it’s my turn to receive blocks this month for the block swap organised by Kate and Sue.

I had tried to put to the back of my mind, the fact that 33 patchwork blocks would be dropping through my letterbox from all over the world this month. Then a couple of days ago I received these three beauties from Lynn who lives in France. Aren’t they gorgeous?



IMG_20151120_102712309I was just coming back to Earth again and then these treasures arrived from Kate who lives in Australia. I can tell you I’m feeling incredibly spoiled 🙂




I chose to be sent blocks in bright blues and purples (these blocks all look a bit more purple in real life), and I dropped many hints about the style of blocks and fabrics that I love, just in case the other participants were reading my blog. Lynn and Kate have done a wonderful job of fulfilling the brief. I’ve got all the blocks laid out on the table just so I can give them a little stroke now and again. They can be my fabric eye candy until the next set of three can join them. Whose blocks will be dropping in next I wonder, and where will they be from? I’ll share them here as soon as I get them.

This is so exciting!

    WOW! So far the Miss November are perfect for you. They are all lovely. I think your hints have paid off. Looking forward to seeing how they fit together with the rest of the blocks.

    • I haven’t made my own three blocks yet as I thought it would be best to see what I receive first. However, having seen these blocks, I now have a finished quilt in mind….putting the cart before the horse I think 🙂

  3. Gorgeous blocks!!!!!

  4. It’s always fun reading the comments when a participant’s first blocks arrive; suddenly the whole thing is real and they realise they’re getting almost a whole quilt’s worth of blocks without all the stitching! I hope the surprise packages continue to delight…

    How exciting! I love waiting for ‘happy’ mail. The colours are pretty too! You are a lucky girl 🙂

  6. It does make a lovely change from bills and junk mail doesn’t it? I’m looking forward to seeing what drops through your door next.

    • It certainly does make a change. I’m looking forward to you receiving my blocks just as much. I wish they would turn up. Everyone keeps telling me they will 🙂

  7. That is a good start. I can see how the colours already blend and work together. Your hints must have been very good!

  10. Oh they are gorgeous. Can’t wait to see what else arrives, not to mention what you do with them all 🙂

  11. Wow, these six blocks are lovely! So different in patchwork but all the colours work so well together!


I really enjoy reading your comments. Have a lovely day :-)
