Chaletgirl Swap Blocks #1

I've finished sewing my first lot of 9 patch blocks for Chaletgirls Block Swap. It took longer to work out which fabric to choose than actual sewing!

These are for Lisa who lives in Canada. This Alexander Henry print is one of my all time favourites. I hestitaed for a second before cutting it up but then thought if I didn't it will just stay sitting in my stash forever, time for it to be released into the universe!

These are for Bronwyn from Melbourne. Nice and soft tone on tone prints to match her delicate floral print.

And these two are for Beth who is also in Canada. A very nice Anna Maria Horner print, thought I'd bring out the pink here!

I hope you like them girls! :) Popping this in the post tomorrow Sheridan, ready for the next round.

These are awesome! I'd love to find a swap like this ... let me know if you're aware of another one starting up.

Gawd Helen, you've been so productive, as usual, on so many different projects!

I wish I had blanket stitch on my machine!
