Carpenter's Wheel matching pair

Here is the block I made for myself, which matches the block below that I made for Carolyn. 

It is the Carpenter's wheel block from Eleanor Burns' Underground Rail Road Quilt book. 

This is the one for Carolyn.

Thank you, Sandi!

Nancy asked me to post this for her.

 I am sending a picture of the block that Sandi sent me. It really adds a great dimension to my quilt-Thank you, Sandi!

sneak peak for Kim B.

Kim, I'm sorry I'm running so late this month.  I got a late start, and then this block just about got the best of me.  I think I used an entire spool of thread..  Sewing...ripping...sewing...ripping....sewing.......

Thank you Kim!

This beautiful block arrived in my mail today from Kim B.  Everything about it is perfect.  It's about time to start designing a quilt, because I think this is block 18 for me. 

teaser for Cathy

this is my first month swapping and i'm looking forward to all the fun!

Cathy asked for black and white with a splash of red.

since it will be making it's long journey to Australia, i wanted to get it done ASAP...i'll get it in the mail this week.

hope you like it :)

Block from Richard .... and a pretty extra

Morning everybody ;-)

I have received two blocks from Richard for March and I am feeling very special  ;-)

Richard has asked me to post pics for him  ;-)

thank you Richard - I hope the waiting game for the new baby is over soon ;-)

Tease for Carolyn

I made one for you and an almost matching one for me.  I thought I could just whip them both out in a few minutes last night and it ended up taking almost 3 hours for 2- 12 inch blocks.  Good thing I made one for me because I think I will never make one again! :)  Lots of work but a beautiful block!  Hope you enjoy it!

Tease For Jody S

Susan L asked me to post this for her

Susan said, "Would you please post this for Jody?  I have had a crazy busy month!  Wonky blocks are a challenge for my "play by the rules" mind, but I think this block came out nicely.  Here is a tease:  I will mail the block on Monday. "

March block from Katthy S. - wowzers!

I received this absolutely gorgeous block from Kathy Snider. I am truly wowed. She knows how wild I am for paper piecing and she did a marvelous job in creating this one of a kind for me. Kathy, my heart is in your hand! Just wish my camera worked better. It is stormy outside, my camera is half broke (like everything else I own, it is getting some age and in need of replacing ~ just not now!)

Also, she blessed with me an "enormous" amount of pink elephants to applique. How did she know that I always say when I get to heaven I will have my very own elephant? Good grief, I think we are on the same wave length!

Thanks again Kathy. I am so glad we were buddied up again. It made my month sew much funner!
Thanks also to our intrepid and faithful Linda for her organizational skills. Kudos!

Block For Sandi C

Nancy H asked me to post this picture of the wonderful block she made for Sandi C.

Look at all those bright colors and jelly beans!  This is the block Barbara S sent me for the March swap.  She said this block is called A Gaggle of Pinwheels.  This is definitely a bright and happy block that will work up wonderfully into a child's quilt.  Thank you so very much, Barbara!
