Mail takes a while, to and from Canada, but it is worth waiting for a beautiful block like this from Ann -
It is actually a deep, vibrant purple rather than the blue in the photo and it is just gorgeous. Thank you so much Ann. This is the block I sent to Ann -
Janet asked for blue and white. I had a great time making these blocks - simple and different from any I'd made before -
Janet sent a purple pinwheel - soft and gentle colours - so beautiful - I just love it. Thank you so much Janet.
Alison asked for a log cabin block. I've made this block before but not in the striking colours of aqua to teal on one side and lime on the other around a grey centre. This is the one I made -
and here is the lovely pinwheel block that Alison sent me. I love the large prints against the white centre. Thank you so much Alison.
One more purple pinwheel is due any day now. I'm sure it is time to put them all together and stitch a very special quilt just for me. Dark and light, lots of purple or lots of other colours, patterns and plains, they are all so good together and I will have a great time making the arrangement.
I do so appreciate this swap group. Sewing for partners is challenging and satisfying, and receiving from partners always makes me smile and appreciate that 'this was made for me'.
