FAwF/FNwF show and tell

FAwF/FNwF   ........... was catch up time for me ;-)

I promised myself I would catch up on my CraftMad Quilt Block swaps - you see I have fallen way behind :(  thankfully, Mandy and Merry are very understanding.

We have started a new colour choice for our blocks this year - dusky greens, blues and yellows.

At first, I had a real problem deciding on my colour choices, then I stumbled on some fabrics from Cynthia's Ark - Daisies in the Wind - and ordered 1/2 metre of each.  Here are the blocks I have made

First block for the year was a Card Trick

this is what I have received

then a Friendship Star

now a Rail Fence

I won't say here who gets what block ............. I want to leave something as a surprise for the recipients ;-)

I have ordered some more of this so that I can continue making our next blocks in the same colourway.  I have spied that it is also available in a pink/purple ............ I can see another order some time soon  ;-)

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.

  2. They look wonderful Cathy. Can't wait to see them in the flesh. The rail fence was so nice and easy to do. I think my favourite so far is card trick.
