Rainbow Quilt Swap 2009!

These gorgeous blocks arrived yesterday - I am so thrilled! Thank you Jane for organizing the Swap and thank you to all the block makers in my group - they are all so nicely made with just wonderful fabrics - no cut off points in this lot - everyone must have read their instructions carefully! My block is the red pinwheel, bottom row!

In the same parcel - on the right, lovely little gifts from Jane, 4 little happy, bright coasters - wow, Jane have you slept lately? - there has been so many in this swap! And, on the left, gorgeous cherry fabric I asked Jane to get for me - I just love pink and red and the little white spots make it such a cute fabric! See Jane's button on my Sidebar - click on it to see her fabrics on eBay - I like whimsy cute fabrics and there's lots of those and Jane is just so charming to deal with, it is worth ordering from her in the USA for a nice little change!
Another weekend is nearly here - a long weekend for Western Australia - maybe lots of sewing will get done - let's hope so!

Oh I have that exact same cherry fabric but with a black background instead of pink! It has a nice feel to it too, not flimsy at all.

The rainbow swap was fun wasn't it! Jane was such a dear!

oooh! I just used up my vintage Blue with white polka dot cherry fabric on my crazy block quilt! I might need to ask you whose that new one is... I love it.
