CHANCE I AM TAKING

The 'chance' I am taking, is that I hope all of these have been delivered now. I don't think everyone I sent to reads this Blog so I may be safe on some. This first picture is of a 'Quiltie' made for a swap on a new group I belong to, it had to be 6" square, so fairly small, for me anyway, I am more used to large Quilts, I did enjoy making this for Caz though, I know she likes purple so the colour will be right...
Oh my gosh, this block has been very difficult for me, it is for another swap, this time on Popular Patchwork forum, the colours had to be 'bright, think sunset, desserts' well these are certainly bright, I had it in mind to do large colourful leaves as though it were the Rainforest!! Hope she likes it...
This was for yet another swap on PPF, I cheated here, I had this block done way back, glad it has come in handy for something as I loved it, the request was - 'my garden' - we used to grow fabulous Roses, so hence this block, yes I know it looks an odd size but 12 x 14 was requested!!...
You may remember Angela and myself are doing a monthly postcard swap, this is my card to her for March, I absolutely love doing trees, and this time I just had to put the yellow ribbon round for A - not Angela, my friend's son A. I sewed beads all over the tree as a hint of the coming Spring, hope Ange likes it...
This is my Quiltie from my swap partner who was.......Annette, my daughter. I just love this because I love all things Amish, as she knows, so am thrilled to bits with this little gem. Thank you Annette xx
I remembered this morning some others I had sent packages to;
Fiona, Susan P and another Susan

Lovely swap pieces Jan. At least Annette didn't have to worry about hers getting lost in the post.
