In an attempt to swap with every member, I am doing a run of double swaps, this month my partners are Helen P and Erin B. as it turns out Erin and I were also partnered in the Christmas swap.
Here are their blocks......
A country colours friendship star for Helen, complete with chooks, can't get more country than chooks.
And any star in any colours for Erin, so I chose a twist in the friendship star, in one of my favourite colour ways if green and pink.
If you want to see Erin's Christmas block you better hop on over to that blog.

The was also some extra fabric and a sweet card purse.
I also wanted to share this nifty little quilt block tool that I have come across (and ordered).. It's called the quick and easy block tool and its a flip out cutting guide for 102 popular quilt blocks with cutting instructions in 5 sizes per block. Perfect for block swap group members.

Again, a huge thank you and hugs to the very gorgeous Eve from fabric direct for donating this pretty set of Anna Bella for our give away. There are five 25 cm strips of fabric in this set.
I recently made a purchase from Eve and asked if she would be so kind as to sponsor us again and she was more than willing to do so, so lets reward her with some online shopping fun at Fabric Direct

Her partner was Ruth who is saving bear paws in rich earthy tones.
This is a pattern that I love making and had fun with it, it will be in the post tomorrow.

Thank you to all of my swap partners that contributed to blocks in this quilt. It's a great example of by just picking a colour range and letting your partner choose what they make you and they all tie in perfectly together. I still have a few blocks in this colour rage, and they are all stars so I will continue to save stars in this colour for a second version.
