Tropical block

My partner for July was Lorna who sent me a block in my new colours of aqua, grey and orange, ans what pretty block it is.


The was also some extra fabric and a sweet card purse.
I also wanted to share this nifty little quilt block tool that I have come across (and ordered).. It's called the quick and easy block tool and its a flip out cutting guide for 102 popular quilt blocks with cutting instructions in 5 sizes per block. Perfect for block swap group members.

It also has reference guides for fabric requirement, it cost 21.95 + postage from Ozquilts, but I think money well spent and will be an invaluable tool.
