Quilts and Swaps

Last night my local quit group swapped back our friendship quilts strips we have been working on for about a year. Mine is the top Japanese one, and I was thrilled with it. Now it's just a matter of putting it all together. Mine is going to be a banner wall hanging.
This was one of the others and I just adoured the colours. It is going to look stunning when it is finished.
Today it was back to the Around the Block Swap. These colours were so pretty and I enjoyed making these blocks. They are in the post now and off the the lucky recipient.

While the iron was hot, I did strike and began the next one that I had in the line waiting to do. This was to be a quirky little village that is being made up. I had a bit of fun with it, and quite a bit of input from the kids. I might make another one of these B4 I send it off.
. . . and now I'm up to date with my swaps.

Yay you! Being back at school obviously agrees with you, perhaps there is something to that 'to get a job done give it to a busy woman' thing after all!

Annie, am jealous. Just couldn't make it last night but would have loved to see all the strips. I have one pink block done - you are winning!
