More block swaps :)

Ank was my QBSA July partner, who sent the lovely starflower blocks below



but recently, I received another block from her


it seems Ank felt bad about misunderstanding my colour preferences and sent a replacement block!  This new block will fit in perfectly with the other blocks I have received, but the lovely blue & purple starflower blocks will not go to waste - I will use them on something else.  So thank you Ank, you didn't have to send a replacement block, but I am very glad you did :)

The Christmas block I sent to Kerri, for September has arrived - I posted a tease photo earlier, but here is a colour photo of what I sent

Here is what Kerri sent me
this is the start of a new Christmas Quilt - I think I will make a Disappearing 9 Patch

Hoping to spend some more time in the sewing room over the weekend :)
