Block Swap

I was on vacation for a week so this weekend I was catching up on chores.  I did manage to get my block done for my Block Swap.  She wanted mauve and green.

As usual I went to Quilt Pro to find a design and then resized to 12" and printed out my cutting instructions.  I find Quilt Pro very handy when my swap partner does not specify what block they want.

I had a lovely Mother's Day.  I got a beautiful bouquet of flowers from my oldest son and my middle son sent me a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.  I do admit I sent him a hint.  They had 20% off gift certificates.  My husband got me a Craftsy class and an autographed copy of Tula Pink's "City Sampler".  Can't wait to get that baby in the mail.  I do have the book on my Kindle and it really comes in handy in the block making process.  You can use you finger to flip pages back and forth and you don't have to flatten the book out to get it to stay on the page you want.  It does have a disadvantage in that you can't flip through the book very easily to see the blocks that are coming up.  Now I will have the advantage of both.
