Friendship Block Swap
I have joined another swap on the PP Forum. This time it is a Friendship Block Swap. There are 14 quilters taking part. Each month we must make one block on a theme chosen by person receiving the blocks. The first month is Jan - what a lucky lady. She has chosen Amish style with a theme of Squares (Jan doesn't want yellow, black or white to be used and only plain fabric). I love to use yellow in my quilts so this was the biggest part of the challenge! The square I made was a Friendship Star Block (12") and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. All those little points matched up beautifully, even though it was quite a fiddly block to make. So far 3 blocks have been made - all very different. I'm looking forward to seeing what Jan makes with her blocks.
The next name gets drawn at the beginning of May (knowing my luck I will be the very last name to be drawn!) I think this is going to be fun.
