I thought it would be nice to share the blocks I made for Miss October and Miss December in the F2F block swap organised by Kate and Sue. We are having a lot of fun choosing fabrics and making blocks for each other.
Here the blocks I made for Lynn, Miss October. I was only supposed to make three but one of them turned out slightly larger than the required 12 inches square finished size so I thought Lynn would like it anyway, to do with as she pleases. Lynn requested turquoise, grey and a hint of coral pink. The puppy block was inspired by Dog Gone Cute over at Sew Fresh Quilts. Their block is rectangular but with a bit of squared paper and some jiggery pokery, I managed to make a square one. I promptly threw away my pattern (I was never going to need another puppy block) and then I was informed by Kate that my parcel to Lynn was missing!! In fact, one of the other participant’s parcels had also failed to arrive. Thankfully, they both eventually showed up back at our own addresses so we could send them on their way again. I was so sad to hear that they were missing in transit but then ELATED when they reappeared on my doormat. You really have no idea how pleased I was. I was happy dancing all around the supermarket car park!! The moral of that story is….don’t read your email while you are out shopping.
November was my turn to receive blocks and you’ve seen those in my previous posts 🙂 Then it was Christina’s turn, Miss December. Here are her turquoise and grey blocks. Those colours are such a popular choice in this swap. Christina doesn’t have a blog but I know she has received her parcel so it’s OK to share photos here now.
Next up is Emmely, Miss January. I’ve posted her green blocks today and I’ll show you when she confirms receipt of her parcel.
Best wishes to everyone for 2016 🙂
