Around the Block Excitement!

For some time now, I've been receiving little parcels in the mail with fabric and created a block or two and sent the little parcels far and wide. I've been in the Around the Block Quilting Group and it's been great. The best part so far, however has been June. It is my month in June, and although it was a bit of work, sending out all the fabric and deciding on a theme for my quilt, it's been a flurry of excitement each day going out to my mail box and finding one of those little parcels addressed to me.
I chose a circle theme and am just loving seeing what people have come up with. I chose colours from my stash all around the colour wheel and sent out 15 parcels each with an individual colour (some doubled up). I chose all my very favourite pieces and am looking forward to actually putting it together, as I have no idea at this stage what it is going to look like. It's going to be a circle surprise.
Thank you girls - keep that post coming!
