Christmas Block Swap - August

Hi everyone,  hope you are all well :)

I recently rejoined the Christmas Quilting Block Swap and have been enjoying going through my Christmas fabrics again.

My August partner, Kimberly, requested the Christmas Star block in any Christmas fabrics.

well, I think this block was a bit cursed - I messed up cutting the fabrics, which meant I had to re-think my colour choices, then I put a row together in the wrong order and had some un-sewing to do :(, then I put some things on top of the half finished block and promptly forgot about it!

It is so true .............. out of sight, out of mind!

Anyway, I finally got it finished, but sadly it was not posted in time for my partner to receive it before the end of the month - which is my goal in all of my swaps :)

Now that I know it has arrived safely, here is the block I made for Kimberly.

and here is the block Kimberly sent me



I have been collecting these blocks for a little while now, so I thought I would put together a collage of what I have so far :)

Happy sewing everyone - I am off to the sewing room, anyone care to join me?


Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
