My August scrapbook challenge

I am involved with my local scrapbook shop who are also online.
 They have a monthly challenge online which inspires me to do another page.
So here is this months challenge page.

A friendly sewing day

Just an update of what I have been doing.
I really liked this twisted pinwheel pattern. Looking through my rulers I realised I had a twist ruler which I hadn't opened.
This is what happened. It went from this.......
To this
So I did it in another colour way 

Now I will make them into cushions for the Kilmore quilt group.

My next 6" blocks

My next partner for the 6" block swap is Ann.
She has asked for ...any blue & white stars..... So I thought I would do the same pattern but in reversed colours.
Here they are. Hope you like them Ann. They will be in the mail tomorrow.

Then I also did some for me.

My BLOCK SWAP blocks

I have been participating in a 6" & 12" block swaps so I decided to make myself the same blocks that I have sent my monthly partners.
Here they are.
Robyn's 6" blocks I have made in a 6" & 12" block. This will make my quilt grow quicker.

Then there was the "Tall Ships" block I did for Jan

MONTH 1----12" block swap

Here is the TALL SHIP block I made for Jan.
This is what I got in the mail today.
A beautiful country LINDA's STAR.
Jan also made me a placemat for a gift.
Thanks so much Jan.
