August Block Swaps

In August I had two lovely swap partners.  The first, Noelene in NSW asked for a log cabin in black on white and white on black. This is what I sent her:

and today I received this lovely block (and a very pretty colour co-ordinated card) from Noelene:

My second swap partner was Ruth who is new to the group this month.  Ruth is a long way away over in Idaho, USA. Ruth didn't have really firm guidelines about what she wanted but suggested a churn dash or a block with an Australian theme.  I managed to combine the two with this block:

I used some wildflower fabric I had from Leesa Chandler's range, Under the Australian Sun.

The postman also brought me Ruth's envelope today - today was a good day for squishy envelopes! She made not one but two blocks for me. She was worried her first one wasn't perfect so she made another one.  I can't even tell which one wasn't meant to be perfect as they are both lovely! Here they are:


Welcome to the group Ruth! Thank you to both Noelene and Ruth for my lovely blocks!
