Block Swaps - My first Dresden Plate block!

I completed my first Dresden Plate block this week ;-) for Margaret, my June partner for QBSA

Margaret requested Dresden Plate with points and each petal a different colour alternating light and dark, on black background. I prefer bright happy colours.  
I am so pleased with my first effort!  I do hope you are happy with it when it arrives, 

so much so, I have ordered a Dresden Plate Ruler from OzQuilts so that I can make up some more and not have to use a paper template.  I am sure a good ruler will make all the difference in the accuracy ;-)

I also completed a log cabin block for Alison for QBSA

Alison requested LOG CABINS - aqua to teal shades (can have other colours blended with these) I have reds/oranges/greens etc) with lime to chartreuse green on the other side (again will have other colours blended).

I do hope I have interpreted your colour request correctly, by keeping the yellow greens on one side and the blue greens on the other ;-)

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.
