Dear Donna.

February is a double month in our Around The Block swap. After finishing Amy's blocks the other week, today I turned to Donna's blocks. She requested blocks of simple shapes, looking at "Dear Jane" blocks for ideas. We were to think squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, stars etc. I must admit I felt daunted. I am not good at at maths and accuracy, I felt scared. So I went the easy path of squares. The above block is based on one of the blocks in the bottom row of this quilt top here that Donna had featured as inspiration. I spent a lot of time looking at that quilt top, pondering which one to do!

I like this one. It is based on this block. I did the one second, more in the swing of it. Hope you like them Donna.
