September Swap I

Hi everyone!

I was lucky enough to have 2 swap partners this month!  I'm posting about my swap with Nolene now that we have both received our blocks!

Nolene requested the log cabin block from Quilter's Cache.  She chose a red centre square with black on white on one side and white on black on the other (the starting log should be white for uniformity).  I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Nolene sent me a green Baby Bunting block.  I'm making a quilt of these blocks in pastel colours on a white background and Sue chooses the colour for me as a surprise!  To see how it's progressing please visit my blog and click on the "block swap" tab at the top.

I'll post about my next swap with Kathy as soon as both blocks have been received!

Or black, white and any other colour. I would be in! It seems to be the in colour combination at the moment - I saw a couple of bargello quilts at the Sydney show - but with good reason. A very striking combination. :-)
