November PP swap for Julie

Julie was my November PP swap partner. OMG - I am so so so bad .Lesson learnt BIG time for me
Lesson- always check the pattern prints at "actual size" NOT "shrink to fit page". I have sent both blocks as maybe Julie can use the "wrong" one as a cushion cover or on the quilt back.
