Last months block swaps ..........

This swap is proving a lot of fun... and I am learning to make new blocks, try out different colours and at the same time collecting blocks for myself.....

These are the blocks I made and received last month:

A log cabin in Christmas colours for Cheryl .............


Any block in blue and yellow for Sylvia (as you see I chose a Dresden plate)


Card trick in 4 colours on a white background for Bobby .........


In return I received this Wonky Square  in I Spy fabrics from Sylvia (no blog) ....


and also this one from Bobbie.... and what was wonderful we were able to meet up ......

If you fancy making and receiving blocks the Christmas Block Swap is hosted by Crafty Pug HERE
(Crafty Pug may take a while to answer due to the magnificent arrival of a little she puglet)

and the 12" blocks is hosted by Sue HERE - there are two different groups and Sue is off on holiday and Alex can be contacted HERE.....

there is also a 6" swap
I have learnt lots of blocks I never had heard of - let alone made

I find these great swaps well organised and plenty of time given to get your block done and if you need a break that's ok too....

All my Wonky Blocks are shown HERE and my Christmas Trees HERE - I am finding my blog a useful information journal for myself.... do you do that??

  2. all the blocks are gorgeous. I am not quite game to commit to a block swap yet. Very clever having different tabs for the different blocks.
    Clever you!

  3. Just lovely blocks Fiona. I would stress about getting them finished, so I really admire you.I too use my blog as a diary, recording what happened in my year. Particulary this year when Max was born. He will be able to read it and know what we were all feeling.... Have a great day..

  13. All the blocks you received and gave are fabulous. I'm rather partial to log cabins and I think the one you made with the Christmas centre is fabulous!

  16. Love the log cabin block, I have never made one. Really especially like eye spy fabrics, cute way to use them.
    My blog was started as more of a journal. Wasn't sure how else to start it.
    One day I'll join you in the Tuesday Treasure. I do have some special things to share.
