    Wow Jill your patterns and colors are so great! I love that you did great on the contrast. That can make or break a quilt block. Good contrast and it looks great! Not enough contrast and the quilt block runs together.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the process too! I know your partner will love it!

    Here is the block TwinRiver sent me. I ask for one with grey and yellow in it as I am collecting blocks for a quilt in those colors. It will work well. Thank you, Miriam.Name:  fall 2010 (Small).jpg

    Thank you so much NuttyHuricane, for the beautiful block that you made for me for the September swap. It is beautiful & I love it a lot. Also thank you for the extra block you made & sent too. The black background just makes it stand out so nicely. Here are pictures of the two blocks that she has sent to me.

    Everyone has just done a wonderful job on using contrast in your fabrics. The quilt blocks are just wonderful.

    I started this swap to encourage people to try my methods and I am so pleased you all seem to enjoy them.

    Nuttyhurricane What did you think about making the wings blocks? That particular quilt block is one of my favorites! I love the illusion of curves.

    Thank you for the kind compliment. The pattern is a Star Point Block called Faith. It was really a fun block to make.

    I used old fashioned names to name the Quilt Blocks. This one is named after my niece Faith Mildred who is now 14.
