Swoon blocks are mailed out

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 Smile

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!

Well Done to every single one of you! It's no wonder it took a long time, it looks like a heck of a lot of work.

I can't imagine making so many. My quilt only has 9 blocks and is still a UFO. I am impressed.

Michele said...

Those are really, really awesome and some fabulous quilts will be the result. Of course I'm partial to the Halloween ones. Congrats to you for a successful swap.

Andi said...

Finally found time to open and savor my blocks! It was fun. Thanks Bea, for being the hostess.

Carla said...

Same block but the colors make them look so different in some of them. Impressive
Thanks for sharing
