A Block for Kim

I hope you like it!
The colors are not as bold as the photo makes it.

Sneak peak for Shannon

This is my first block as I am a new member of the Block Swap 
  I was very happy to have Shannon as a partner since she requested a wonky star in whatever colors and she had no dislikes!!  

How  easy is that for a first timer!!!! How lucky am I?!!

Here is a peak at the block which will go in the mail tomorrow!!

Sneak Peak for Raelene

Raelene asked for anything in Japanese fabrics...
I hope you like this...

I sure enjoyed working with the fabrics...
I might have to reach into some of 
them for myself!

Thank you Agnes!

I received this wonderful block in the mail yesterday, along with some extra fabric and a pretty card.  Agnes stalked my blog, and sent goodies that she knew I would really love. 

And here is a sneak peak of the block that is winging its way to Agnes.  I hope she likes hers as much as I like mine.

Now I'm off to make my June block!                Sunny

Scrap Block from Sunny!

This gorgeous Scrap Block from Sunny was waiting in the mail for me when I got home from vacation!  Thank you, Sunny...I love the fabrics you chose and love the block----Ida

I'm taking this opportunity to put all of you on notice - well, at least those of you who do not communicate with your partners or do not send out your blocks.  We have lost several long time members this month due to lack of communication by partners and/or missing blocks.  This group will not work without everyone's full participation.  We all have an off month or two, but it only takes a few seconds to send an email letting your partner know that life has gotten in the way of making their block and that it will still be coming in the mail.  
If this continues, I will be forced to end Block Swap Adventure, and I really don't want to have to do that.

Final basket block

I received this wonderful basket block today from Jessica.

 It's my last basket, and now it's time to start making a quilt.  Any great ideas?


Blocks Should Be In The Mail

Remember to get your blocks in the mail by Friday, May 25.  If you are going to be late, please let your swap partner know immediately!  
I will be sending out June swap partners Friday.  If you do not receive an email from me by 5:00 pm PDT on Friday, please check your spam folder.  If you still don't have one, please email me and let me know.

My Celtic Block ~ Received from Shannon

OMG! This is such a lovely Celtic Block Shannon ~ Thank you. I love the wonderful fresh look and use of a 30's fabric line. The block is more complicated than I thought and you have executed it wonderfully. For now I have put it with some of the items I was able to bring back with me from Ireland.

With this month's block exchange, I changed my request from basket blocks to patriotic star blocks.  My new quilt got off to a wonderful start with not one but two beautiful stars from Ida.  Woo Hoo!!

A beautiful block from Kim in IN

I received another beautiful block from Kim in Indiana. I didn't realize how complicated the pattern I chose until I began to receive the blocks.  Thank you!

Block Rvd From Cyndi

I recieved my gorgeous Storm At Sea block in the post this morning from Cyndi.

Thank you Cyndi it is wonderful!  Yours will be on it's way to you either Monday or Tuesday as I just bought the fabric today and will get it done on the weekend. :D

I started one but didn't like the way it was turning out and had to go get some other fabric.  Horrible fate that huh? ;)
