Chaletgirls Block Swap Complete!

Well it started back in early March here and now look, all my blocks have returned home! Don't they look great together? Such soft, pretty looking blocks. My Mother In Law was admiring them as I was unpacking them and spreading them out on the floor. Maybe a quilt for her? How many quilts can I have draped over the couch? I'm thinking at this early stage 6 blocks across and 7 down. The column on the far right is my unsure pile. They are beautiful blocks but my eye goes to them immediately rather than blending in with the rest. So am thinking maybe a row on the backing, that would work. Or maybe I'll learn to love them.

Thanks to the lovely ladies who made this swap so great. Especially the wonderful Sheridan who organized us all. :) The blocks are all starting to return to their homes. Some can be seen here.

Sneek peek of next months Homespun article can be seen here. I am nervous.....

Your blocks look beautiful! It took me awhile to pick out the blocks that I made for you. It's fun to see what fabrics I used in each quilt!

They look stunning all together

They look great! And like Lynn, I've been squinting, and trying to remember which ones I made (and hoping they're not all in the jump-out strip :) )

Helen they look great but I do think I agree with you about those ones down the side. Could be a good Chrissy pressie for the MIL

Ooooh that's a good idea from Cass - a table runner?

Love that you went with blue and green again for the Homespun project - I think you have a new palette!

They look great laid out. So fun at this end stage to see it all coming together.
