I was asked by some fellow to bloggers to join in a block swap. I haven't taken part in a block swap in ages so I thought I'd give it a try! I was told we were making "slab" blocks. I had to google it to make sure it was a block I could make! There are 5 of us in the swap. We each asked for specific colors and sizes. I asked for a pink/green block that finished at 10 inches square.
Dawn made the squares at the top of this post. Aren't they pretty?! I just love them. I was thinking of making a table runner.The fabrics are perfect. Dawn blogs at sewyouquilt2 and you can find it here. I love her blog. There's always something fun going on!
Julierose sent me this beauty! One of the fabrics looks like Little Red Riding Hood dolls, So cute! She made her block a little larger but I can always trim it down. These blocks are fast but so fun to look at the various fabrics. You can find Julierose's blog at julierosequilts. She's very artistic and I love to see what she's working on.
This last block was made by Jacky. She doesn't have a blog but she does have some gorgeous pink and green fabrics! Another lovely block for me! Such fun! I really looked forward to receiving mail! Each envelope I received held a surprise for me!
My slabs have all been mailed. I like symmetry and straight lines so I did the best I could! It was fun to play in the scrap bag and put together some nice fabrics. Thanks for asking me to participate!
