My letterbox has been very busy over the last few days. I’ve received another three parcels, each containing three lovely blocks.
I’m taking part in a block swap organised by Kate and Sue. Twelve patchworkers from all over the globe are making three blocks for each of the other eleven participants. I’m Miss November so my blocks are now rolling in 🙂
Parcel 3 came from Esther. Aren’t they fabulous? Esther loves foundation paper piecing and she’s designed some beautiful intricate blocks for me.
Next, I received Sue’s blocks. The purple in the first block and the blue in the last one are such gorgeous rich shades. I’m definitely going to try to make the first block myself. I love this pattern.
Last but not least, Claire’s blocks arrived this morning. The first one is a combination of two of my favourite blocks, the pinwheel and flying geese 🙂 Lovely blocks and colours too!
If you saw my previous post showing Parcels 1 and 2, you’ll be getting a good idea of how all the blocks are blending together. So far, so good. I’m tempted to start my own blocks even more now that a few parcels have arrived. I do have a vision of the final project(s) but I’m resisting the temptation. The next parcel may send me off into a completely different direction. Who knows? That’s the fun of this swap. Thank you very much ladies 🙂
I hope you are finding time to sew this weekend 🙂
