block swap adventure2

BSA2 block for Charlene
My July partner in BSA2 is Charlene and she asked for any block in black, white and red. I made another starflower block, I love how simple HST make such a pretty block, fabric is from stash.

I've also been sewing a mini quilt for the name game swap but I am not happy with it and do'nt know what to do next, any suggestions?
the quilt so far, her name will be embroidered onto the quilt.

Quilt Club Australia

Violet's Lily's and Charlotte's quilt tops
 the tops are together, Lily's and Violet's are 16.5" blocks and Charlotte's are 12.5". Most of these were made as part of the Quilt Club Australia bee#2 for me in the month of April. I made the rest over the last couple of months, I am adding 4" borders on the big ones and 3" on the smaller one and have Moda "It's a Hoot" fabric for the backs. I'll show you when they are finished, promise.

what I took from her

what I added
QCA is all about quilting, doing bees, travelling stashes and handmade swaps it is a fun group to be part of. Farrah is the brainchild of Bronwyn and you can read her blog here. Farrah has been to Armidale, Glenmore Park and now in Elderslie. When I know where she is off to next I will pop her in the post and someone else will get to play with her fabrics.
