February Swaps ...................

My 12 inch swap partner was Lori B. I sent these star blocks in rusts, golds and dark greens -
Lori sent a Tall Ship -
These are all the Tall Ships I have so far!!!

My Christmas partner was Raelene who sent me a beautiful star block - red, green and tiny holly print, all with a touch of gold [no picture just now.
My block to Raelene was an appliqued tree, then I made a postage stamp tree so I was sending a block that did not replicate those she already has.

I am also taking part in the Valentine Day Initial Heart Swap - now waiting impatiently for my parcel - these are the goodies I sent to Melody -

Fabric bowl with ribbons and pins, pin cushion, tea and coffee, nibbles, embroidered and beaded Mug Mat.

Anna sent me four Tesselcat blocks in the paper piecing swap - they are beautiful, I love them all -

Thank you so much to all my lovely partners - 6 inch swap will complete February.

My daughter reminded me that my youngest granddaughter is the only grandie I have not made a quilt for - well now I have. I think pale and subdued but always finish bright and cheerful. A picture when I have completed a mix of machine and hand quilting.

Current project under way is a gentle, simple quilt for my delightful hair dresser. She is expecting her first baby in June, and I simply have to make her a quilt.
A picture later.
