August's Block for Sandra

This is going out in today's mail but I wanted to give Sandra R a picture to see since I figured it would take a little extra time with going to Canada.  She asked for a Maple Leaf which I was able to use up some of my "maple leaf" fabric from my stash!  I liked this one so much I may end up doing a whole quilt of it

Sneak Peek for Shannon

Here's a sneak peek for Shannon in ID. . . . your block went in the mail today.  I hope you like it!

The colors don't show correctly. . . . I think it is because I did a "zoom" and had to use the flash.

Blocks swapped between Lynn and Teresa

I received this lovely block from Lynn yesterday

She asked me to upload a pic of the block I sent her, she mentioned that she liked the Inverted Star I made for Sunny so I made one for Lynn but changed the colours to suit Lynn's tastes. 

The original pattern for this Inverted Star is available as a free download from Craftsy.  and all credit should be given to the designer, I just followed the instructions.
