6" & 12" Block swap & Santa Sack Swap

I have been working on my Santa Sack Swap and have finished a special gift BUT haha I cannot show you. It is a surprise gift. We know the swap partners but we can't give away the surprise of what we are making for their gifts. For that they have to wait until Xmas.....
Here is a sneak peak... Can you guess what it is ?????.

Then I had to get finished 2 * 6" double pinwheel blocks made for Shannon in the USA.
We are swap partners this month in the 
Shannon wanted Kaffe Fasset fabric. This was well and truly out of my comfort zone. I went shopping and bought some fabric. It's not something I had at home. There it sat for 2 weeks. Soldier on and do it... So that's what I did..... Here they are......

And during the week I received my 12" Maple Leaf block from Anna. We had been partners in January in the Paper pieced Swap so it was good to have contact again. All Anna had to do was make 1 * 12" block. To my surprise she made 3  blocks, added in a 6" block too. But wait, there's more.. A cute little coaster in the shape of a Maple Leaf. It is so cute. I am already using it.
So go and have a look at all these swaps HERE


  1. Hi Jo oh your Xmas sneak peek looks so cute,and boy you sure have fun with these blocks,they look fantastic.xx

  2. You are such a tease! All of the blocks look great and I really like the maple leaf coaster.

  3. I love the KF fabrics, too, but not together... too busy. You did a lovely job, though. I think the darker pink helped to define what the pattern is.
    Please keep this peek in mind... I want to see it all!
    Your Maple Leaf exchange blocks are wonderful. You will be able to use those in a quilt. I really prefer the smaller sized one - I like to work small.
    Have a lovely weekend.


Thanks for taking the time to have a read and leave me a message.
Have a great day
