My favorite of the four this time is the one in the upper left corner. I'm so in love with that shade of blue!
Susan's blocks for me arrived just in time for our post today...yay, Mr. Mailman! She tried something different and switched out the light triangles for dark on two of the blocks. That will add a little interest in our quilt, I think. You might also notice the same fabric for all four of of the "X" sections as well. I like that they will add more white to our quilt.As usual, the cousins played well together again this month!
The package from Susan was extra heavy and when I opened it I'm sure I made a little yelp! Here's a glimpse of all the goodies after I tore into it. She really outdid herself in surprising me! (You might recognize those churn dash blocks....I'll be doing a post about them soon!)
The other goodies are an early birthday gift it turns out! Have you ever seen a cuter seam ripper or hot pad? ( A tiny frog is hiding behind the ripper lady.) Each one of the little cards is as adorable as this one about friendship and they come with a small wooden display stand. I'll probably prop those right next to my sink where I can enjoy them every day.
These Friendship x and + blocks really are doing a great job of cementing the long distance friendship that Susan and I share. I hope that everyone that's participating in the swap is sharing the same experience!
Thanks Susan. Your the cat's meow!
