For the last month of the year....(how can that be)
My swap partner was Dawnelle from the state of Washington.
She requested any 'Star block'................in traditional colors.
So, I put the first block together and my son was looking at it as I took a picture
he said "Mom, I don't see the green points so well as they blend in the poinsettia's"?
"huh"? I asked.......sending to my panel of
judges daughters for some more opinions?
Um...these children all have likes and dislikes so it was not a total agreed vote! Ha!
So....off Momma went to make one more.................this second one is with a new fabric
called "stained glass" I really liked the way it showed up.
Well, this one got rave reviews ...so with the vote still coming in at a un-even decision....
you guessed it- both blocks went to Dawnelle!
I included some Christmas goodies, and a fat quarter!
Dawnelle is a new quilter and nice to build up
stash supply, yes?
To let you know I got a email from Dawnelle that she got my package.
I have to laugh she added "my hubby and I really liked the green & red one"! Smile
I was happy to make them and hope she enjoys them along with her love of quilting!
I feel that I'd like to also add, while we were swap partners Dawnelle lost her sister to cancer.
Our family is remembering her & her family during this time. I know she would appreciate us thinking of them as well!
A blessed December to all~
