First Finish for 2012

My First Finish ........ Yay!!!!!



I finally got around to piecing together some of the blocks I have received whilst being a member of Quilting Block Swap Australia and Block Swap Adventure.

Ready to snuggle under when it gets a bit colder ;-)




I love the fact that all these different blocks have come from different parts of the world and look so great together.  I am really looking forward to snuggling under this one this coming winter ;-)

So to all of my swap partners, thank you so much for the lovely blocks you have made - if you don't see your block in this quilt, it will be in the next one.


Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.

  1. It's beautiful! What type of blocks did you ask for? I'm planning to start a new theme, and I just love the look of this. Happy cuddling.

    1. Hi Sunny

      I asked for any blocks in autumn/fall tone (rich reds, browns, golds, muted greens) I suggested to think of all the colours the leaves turn.

      I do have other blocks with more greens in them, and they will make another quilt a bit later ;-)

  3. Wow, Cathy! I love the chart you kept of all the personal info for each exchange block, and they look so great all together. Isn't Swap Adventure fun? You should link up and share your finish at TGIFF! (It's conveniently at my blog this week.) In case you want to: http://whatahootquilts.blogspot.com/2012/01/tgiff-host-spot-12712-ufo-finish-ri.html
