July block swap

I have been quite busy with my quilting lately,  I have finished Nicoles baby's Noahs Ark quilt including the quilting and the binding.   I didnt purchase enough of the backing fabric from spotlight and when I went back to see if I could get more they didnt have anything remotely like it,  So I decided to block piece the back with some ABC animal prints that I had from a layer cake.  I am really pleased with the result only wish I gave a little more thought to placement of the colours of the blocks.

I have also managed to complete my USA July block swap partners block.  Debbie is my first Canadian block swap member so I really am going global :-)
As Debbie is happy to receive any style of block I decided to do another version of the Jacobs ladder one that I made for Maree a couple of months ago as I was really pleased with how this turned out.  Her only request was pink and brown.  I have some very pretty pink and brown butterly print so I have used this with a tone on tone brown and a tone on tone pink.
