Well not only is this my very first swap but it is also my very first block - EVER!!!
Brenda from Tennessee USA of Quilter Raised in the South Blog asked for happy colors like blues, greens, pinks and browns. I think I have managed to get all four into the one block :-) Just to challenge myself a little more. At first I chose really bright colours but after reading Brenda's blog, I realised that our interpretation of bright colours may have been a little different. I then changed my colour choices to try to match colours she has already used to match her tastes.
The fabrics I have chosen have a little bit of an Aussie twist,which I thought would be cool to send overseas.
It has taken me a little longer to get my sneek peek posted. As I do not own a sewing machine, I have been doing this all by hand, and enjoying the process completely, even starting my very first quilt journal as well.
I have also enjoyed getting to know Brenda a little and look forward to learning of Brenda's reaction to my block - will she like it?, Receiving my own block, what a mystery and meeting more of you swappers.
So, after all that - here is a sneek peek for Brenda...
Oh, and Brenda's tip of STARCH, STARCH, STARCH has been invaluable - thanks Brenda.
Have a wonderful day
