Our lovely Annie M was the winner of last months blocks and has chosen this fantastic theme for this months blocks ... thanks Annie and congratulations on your win ...


Please sign up here if you wish to participate in this swap ... please email me for the pattern if you don't already have it .. there is a link at the bottom of this post for my email or PM ... or download the pattern [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ... and you will find all the information [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] !!!!!

The 8 inch (finished) block theme for this swap is .. Yellow Flowers and Blues .... and the borders ... now here is the twist ... the borders are to be 4 different blues ... yes .. you got that right ... each border piece is to be a different piece of fabric .. so these blocks are definitely going to have that scrappy look about them .. all blocks can be made identical but all must have 5 separate colours in each... can't wait to see what you all come up with ...

The block centres may be a charm square .. appliqued .. embroidered or paper pieced .. that bit is your personal choice ... don't rush them and remember to make something you would love to receive ... and remember ... you need to make 6 and photograph all of them to go into the draw ...

You must have your photos posted no later than midnight November 30th ... please post all photos in the gallery which you will find [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ...

Remember .. no photo .. no entry ... ... no entry .. no chance to win ...

also please note ... you may have to pay for international postage on these blocks when sending them to the winner ...

but then again ... you may not have to worry about the postage .. cos you may be the winner .. which means you get to keep yours and get a whole lot of squishies in the mail ... woohoo....

Winners will announced on the 1st of next month .... I will contact the winner to get a snail mail address and then will let you all know what that is ... via email ...

it will be lovely to have you all join in ... and don't forget to have lots of fun picking out your fabrics .....

not many sign ups this month ..... still time to go though .. so if you want the opportunity to receive a bundle of blocks in the mail ... and these will be pretty too i am guessing ... then get your machines out ladies and get sewing ....


i have my yellow flower fabric .... daffodils ... and my 4 blues for my borders .... and hopefully i will have some time alone on the weekend to get them together and a pic taken ...

Sounds lovely Bobbie. I don't think I will be joining in this swap though as I have other commitments elsewhere that need to be done before Christmas - like some much needed housework!!! (gulp) haha But I am looking forward to seeing the blocks in the gallery.

i am very lucky staying here ... cos my cleaning is not good enough for some folk .... whatever i do she comes along and does again .. even the dishes ... so ... i sit on my laurels and do NOTHING ...... oh i do vac and tidy my room ... and do my laundry and prepare my own breakfast and lunch .... but that is it ... and i eat whatever she cooks for dinner without complaint ... and am just thankful that i am not paying for it and .... i don't have to do the washing up ....


mind you .... this morning as she was talking and mumbling to herself i did hear something about .... never having the fairies come take care of her dishes or housework ... ................................... fool that she is ... she could be putting me to good use ..... i am not totally useless ......

Perhaps a jewel box ?
white borders with jewel box colours. Does that make sense? I think Tarnyia has one in the gallery.

citrine and tourmaline i will have to look up .. the others i think i know ... lol

off to find mr google and see what he says ,,,
