|For Annabella, Isle of Wight|
We are given the choice of colour that the recipient would like and the blocks are 12" finished. I always take forever to decide which fabrics to use and which design of block to make, so I spent a very happy Saturday afternoon choosing both!!
|For Carol, New Zealand|
In the end, I chose to make two 'Jacob's Ladder' blocks which were straightforward to make and I was pleased with the results.
I also decided that I should add a little label to the back of the 'secret project' I have been working on, so I did that too. Now both the blocks and the secret project are ready to put in the post. It is just as well, as some of them have a long way to travel!!
|From Claire, Lowestoft, United Kingdom|
By coincidence, I received another block to add to those I received for my birthday this morning. This pretty block is from Claire.
You can see all the birthday blocks that I have made and sent, as well as those that I have received on my 'Birthday Block Swap Page'. When I have received all my blocks I will be making them into a quilt which I am very excited about. It will be lovely to have a quilt made from blocks which have come from all over the World!
So much delight in the birthday blocks, I looked through them all again. Makes me want to make more quilts : ) Thanks for sharing. JanitaReplyDelete
