crafty wednesday!

whew - i feel like i am back on track now!

i have completed some of my block swaps for this month....
some sneak peeks...

for Christmas Quilting Block Swaps Australia this month, i am swapping with mary who requested a traditional block in white, burgundy and sparkly blue

for Quilting Block Swaps Australia, i am swapping with Brigitte, who requested a log cabin block in red, black and white

and then got to work on some blocks for Cat's quest to make quilts for those affected by the earthquakes in NZ.  this is a DNP from the quilt that will be for my hubby....i love sharing that quilt around (but i am sure i will regret it when i need to make more blocks for it when i put it together!)

this is a Beginner's Choice block made with monochromatic fabric - love the contrasts

and my Pièce_de_résistance - i finished the quilt top for my Boy O Boy Quilt!!! yay!!! (it was a bit windy this arvo, so apologies for the low quality piccie!)  now i just have to quilt it!

so all in all very satisfying!

hope you got some quilting done too!

pugs and kisses
