Around the Block Update!

Due to the road closures, mail has been slow getting up here. So it was with great excitement I got two packages for my round of the Around The Block Swap today! This one above is from Abbe. Thank you Abbe, I like how the dark green and white dots are just one line.

And this one from our lovely leader, Sheridan. Thank you Sheridan! My thoughts turned today to "I wonder what swap Sheridan will organize next......"

And this one from Becky. This one actually came the other week but I put it aside to blog together with the next one. Thanks Becky!

And I have been trying to sew a few with the scraps as they come back. So I made this one....

And this one! They are very therapeutic to sew.

So you put them all together, and you get this! These are just randomly placed. 16 blocks so far. Just for my notes, there are 4 x 12.5 inch blocks. 3 x 8.5 plus 5 x 4 inch blocks. 5 x 4 by 6.5 inch blocks. 4 x 10.5 with lots of little 2.5 inch squares. Looking good!

I love this! I've always wanted to make one but could never figure out how they work. I see it a little better now that I see your individual blocks. I love it!!

I just love your blocks altogether in the layout. There is so much movement in there it's really fun too look at! Well done Gracie, too!
