More blocks

top for name game swap - still need to finish it

today's play block A1 from Dear Jane mine on the left, Clare's on the right.
Think mine needs a press and mine is the one sewn wrong.

Block from Margaret
block swap adventure
I spent yesterday sewing a geese in a ring as the main part of the name game swap for my partner, need to do her name,quilt and bind and have in the mail by 29th Feb. It is travelling across the ocean to the other side of the world.
The other week Berrima Patchwork had a sign up day, showing all the quilts that you could do there over the year. There was a Dear Jane quilt that Clare said I would love to do that! Well I have the book and the rulers so we decided to do it together, each Wednesday we are getting together and doing a couple of blocks and trying to do some in between as well. We will have some time apart as she goes to visit Jen in London but I still might spend Wednesday sewing, Dear Jane or something else.
My block for February for block swap adventure arrived from Margaret today in the mail, hers was posted to USA on Monday. This is the only regular swap I am doing for the early part of this year, having a break from the other 2 while I try and get my bee in oz quilt finished and do my swoon quilt.

A few blocks

Block from Jolanda

Block for Margaret

Blocks for Waverlee
From the top my block from Jolanda arrived during the week, my block for Margaret for this month in the block swap adventure.
I joined a new group - Quilt club Australia on facebook. It is all Australian quilters and they had sign ups for a quilting bee, I'm in group2, you use your own fabric and make the block the person for the month wants. This month we are making 8" aqua and red string blocks for Waverlee in WA, fast easy and I made her 2 using fabric already in my stash. These will be posted tomorrow (Monday) as will Margarets block.
