Around The Block Progress.

Our Around the Block swap is drawing to a close. These two blocks are for Annie. Annie wanted circles. She added my Squid Eye Quilt to her gallery of inspiration so I found these blocks easy to do. I hand sewed the blanket stitch for some texture, so these took longer than usual, they were due last month. Sorry Annie, hope they are worth the wait!

And these two are for Jan. Jan sent the borders cut to size, so it was just following her guidelines of making the centres as simple or complicated as we want. The top one I decided for a mini stacked coin look but then it got really busy so I added some white to break it up but got all my measurements out of wack. I am hopeless at maths..... The second one I went for a simple square in a square.

I have been doing that thing where you slide from one blog to another and ended up here and recognised your fabulous DQS quilt and then saw some blocks which I have already faved so I should come to your blog more often. I now have to figure out your flickr name by going back to flickr and reminding myself who made the fab applique and swirly quilting quilt. What fabrics are in the final blocks in that post? I love them. And I love your circles blocks and will copy them next time I'm asked to do circles if that's OK!
