Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

It has been a while since I have updated progress that has been happening in my Quilting Block Swaps Australiaswap group.

Over the last few months I have received some wonderful blocks from my swap partners.  Now I know this would appear to be an Aussie block swap, and yes most of us are Aussies, but not all.  My august swap partner is in Portugal!!

The block my partners make for me is the Plaited Block - as described by The Quilter's Cache, a fabulous site of sooooo many free quilt block patterns (an lots of other stuff as well).  My colour stipulations are easy - white background and two bright colours for the 'plait'.

These are the wonderful blocks I have received so far:

 May block
Made by Helen Rhodes

June Block
Made by Deb Ariel

July Block
Made by Bobbie Bartlett
It's All About Me 

August Block
Made by Teresa Felgueiras
Quilting Stitching and Sew On 

I absolutely love them all and eagerly look forward to the quilt that they one day will become.  Just need to keep swapping for many more months.  Yay!

 These are a few of the blocks I have made for others.  The beauty of the swap is that you can let your partner know block and what type of fabrics you would like so it will fit in with your desired end project.

If you would like to find out more about this swap group just click on the button below and take a look (which is how I was lucky enough to find it in the first place!!).
