June blocks on the move

I have just completed my two June block swaps and ready to post.  Maree from NSW requested Birds in the air in autumn tones.  It does not show up on the photo, but the choc triangle is made up of 5 pieces and the pale colour is a soft olive green shade.




Andee my US swap lady requested any pieced blocks with birds.  For her I found some lovely fabric in my stash with Australian parrots and complimented this with red and blue fabric to match the Rosella's. 
I hope you both enjoy your blocks. 

I certainly am enjoying the challenge of researching requested patterns and using colours that I would not normally use - I have to say I have been surprised and pleased at the same time with the results.
