Block Swap

Some of us who participated in  the Let's Stitch event at Quilt Fabric Delights recently decided to do a block swap. The size of our block was to be 5 1/2 inches so I had a look around the net for some ideas. I had originally planned to do an hourglass block, but I ended up making the blocks used in the  Pieced Scrap Border quilt by Rita at Red Pepper Quilts as they were the perfect size. I made a "practice" block first to make sure I was going to end up with the right sized block at the end.
  And these are the blocks which I have posted out this morning ....
I hope they are ok as I haven't really made a lot of blocks before.


  1. I love the pink and green fabrics. So pretty! I think your blocks look great!

  2. Very pretty blocks! I love how you made your sample blocks into a coaster.

  3. Very pretty little coaster! The other blocks are very pretty, too. Lovely colors.

  4. Love your little coasters! So fun.

  5. I got one of yours!!!!
    Yeah, I have been trying to find out who made mine.
    I made the ones with Owls if you got one of those

  6. I got one of your blocks too! Thank you so much. Such a lovely block and great colours too!
