Richard's First Swap

Hello my name is Richard from http://richardquilts.blogspot.com/ I am brand new to quilting and brand new to block swaps and yes the is my first swap I am so excited my first ever block showed up in the mail today it is from Ank in The Netherlands my little girl squealed when she saw it and says she wants me to make her a Quilt with it.


Below is the block I sent her.  This is my first block swap and she made it easy on me and told me to pick a block I like and make any thing I hope that she loves it.  I have seen the Magic Trick block and wanted to give it a try.  I cut out 2 sets of every thing in case I totally messed up but it worked out great.


I can not wait tell next month and the next swap this was so much fun.

Thanks Richard Healey

Wow Richard, what a great block! Love the colours. Like Fiona, I joined hoping to learn new patterns. This is one I've not tried yet but it's on my list. Welcome to the group!
