I think it’s safe to post these now as I think almost everyone got their blocks now (maybe not the internationals?)
anyways, with a delay and a hiccup in the swap, the blocks were here and finally sorted!
I show them on the wall in groups with each pair next to each other, from the same person, so some may look stark, but once they are mixed around, they will all look great
#1 – halloween blocks for Becky
White / beige / very light grey background
and #2 was mine- Christmas colors
#3 for Diane- also Christmas colors with a cream background and red or green anywhere on the block.
#4 Kylie- Aqua and red and white
#5 Sandie- low volume background, red houses and anything for the star and points.
background color to be a light beige.
The house units a blue-green and the star a coral color.
Background: maize to meringue
House shapes: stay closer to cerise but can go to berry (just a little too dark)
Points and center star: olive to artichoke.
#8 Laura- white background, bright turquoise stars and points and then navy blue “houses”
#9 Andi- patriotic colors in any combination of red, white, blue and yellow-gold.
This block swap was a lot of fun!
Though I do think it kicked our butts!- took a lot longer and was harder than we thought… still worth it though!
