Swap blocks

I just wanted to share two blocks I'm sent out to my March swap partners for Block Swap Adventure.  Yes thats plural I was asked to take a second partner as we had a new member.
Theresa asked for a star block in spring/summer fabrics using modern fabrics.  She especially liked large florals.

She also said dots so I gave her everything she asked for.
Brenda is new to swapping and said she was up for almost anything but batiks and flurescents.  Though she added she would like farm related blocks so I made her a Sawtooth star too.

She seemed receptive to modern fabrics so I think she will like it.
I finished the top for my DSQ10 quilt. 

 I m thinking of using the  deep purple as a narrow border between the rainbow fabric.

I will finish it up and baste it tomorrow.  I plan on hand quilting it next week during spring break using pearl cottons.

Keep dreaming...Colleen

Ahhhh, my happy place.

I saw your sneak peeks on the BSA blog and had to come over to see the completed blocks. They're great! So colorful and I love the dots in the first one.

P.S. What a great happy place! I posted a happy place pic last night too. Dreaming of the next time I can visit it!
