I am participating in the Around the Block Swap, which involves making two blocks for a participant from fabrics that they have sent to you. The person whose turn it is to send the fabrics does provide some guidance as to how they like their blocks to look. By the end of the month that person will have enough blocks to complete a quilt top.
Kate from One Flew Over was the first to send out her fabrics and I have really enjoyed playing with her them. I love the fabrics Kate has chosen and I was keen to get started on making these blocks straight away.
Kate included in her fabrics these cute (and hard to find!) Heather Ross fabrics. I can understand what the fuss is all about, the little pictures, although dainty, are detailed and just plain gorgeous! They are definitely on my stash wish list!
I have also received this gorgeous gift in the mail. This pincushion was made by Mel from From Little Things...
Thank you Mel, I love it! Believe it or not, I actually did not have a pincushion, so it will definitely be much loved and often used.
