Finished books -jars for the BOOKCASE BLOCK SWAP.

Along with the book blocks we were to make a novelty block. I decided to make a cookie and button jar. Overall I'm happy with them.

Probably wasn't the best choice in fabrics as they blend more than expected. 
Hopefully the quilters that receive them will be happy with them.

I also added a few buttons for them to sew on to give the jars more depth.

On their way to the US.

Now your blocks are finished and sent away, guess you will be waiting patiently for the mail man to arrive with your swap blocks. How exciting! Did you keep one each of what you had made for yourself? I took part in several block swaps some years ago, always such fun.

They are cute, Jo! Love the idea to send along a few buttons for embellishment. I’ve never participated in a swap, but I bet it’s fun! Have a funderful weekend!
