January 2017 B group swap

January blocks for Anne James - whose request was Friendship Star in bright colours - I hope these colours are bright enough for you.

January 2017 B group swap

January swap blocks for Nelly Holmes whose request was ShooFly block in 1930s fabrics with a solid white background. I love 1930s fabrics and plan (one day) to make a quilt using them with the Circle Magic template.

December blocks for Joy Latimer whose request was Churn Dash in bright colours - the lime is definitely bright, and the blue fabric is a nice bright jade.
