Around the block for July

Finally it’s my turn!!  For the past 12 months I’ve been participating in Around the Block – a swap with some amazingly talented girls.  We’ve done circles and wonky logs and stars and squares and wonky houses and zigzags and lots of other fun blocks.

A couple of the girls who were in the early months have finished their quilts – and they are AMAZING.

Anyway, now it”s July and that’s my month.  So, using some of the fabrics from America and some from my stash I’ve packaged up 15 bundles and handed them over to the postman for safe keeping.  A couple are already with their crafty guardians who I’m sure will look after them and turn them into something beautiful before sending them back.  Actually the whole process of deciding what I wanted everyone to do, writing directions, choosing fabrics and cutting (how much to send??  I’m sure I’ve sent too much but at least people have a choice what to work with) took a lot of time. I’ve already made a few blocks using the feature fabrics from the new range so now I just to wait patiently until my blocks start coming back home.  I’m thinking the quilt will be for the Princess Room at Sewjourn.
