January Craftmad Sewing Swap

This month at Craftmad we have decided to swap 9" blocks over three months to create a small quilt.
For a lot of us this is the first time we have done anything like this......this includes me.
I have sewn a whole bunch of squares together before to create a knee rug for our lounge room but never attempted any block patterns.

So the January swap is a Rail Fence block to three people in their favourite colour combo.
Annette was looking for greens.  
It is nice to finally use some of the fat quarters I have collected through previous swaps.

This block headed over to Cathy who asked for Autumn tones.

My third block went to the lovely Kelly who asked for a blue theme.

I had such a great time sewing all these blocks up and seeing how well the variety of fabric patterns worked together.

Can't wait till next month as we are doing a Disappearing Nine block suggested by Annmaree.
You are more than welcome to join on in next month.  I have a couple of spare blocks to catch you up.


  1. What a fun thing to participate in, wish I could be as talented! x

  2. How talented is that, Merry! Love all your three blocks.Plenty of time and patience gone in there for sure.
