New blocks

I made a few new Around the World swap blocks over the weekend for other people.  It is so much fun, using their fabric and shopping in my stash for things to go with it.  These two happened to be holiday-themed, and, although my hoiday stash is slimmer due to making a few scrappy quilts last year, I still had a little that worked. 

This one is for Cathie in Australia who is moving into a new home and wanted a new Christmas quilt for it.

And this one is for Janet in West Virginia.  I made another one with her fabric that is in my "reject" pile - the background fabric was too dark and didn't show her fabric off to advantage.  It'll no doubt go either on the back of my Around the World quilt or on my "memories and rejects" quilt at the end of the year.

I love the way each Dutchwoman's Puzzle looks slightly different, depending on the fabric.
