This year's Around the World block swap is in full swing. I have a bunch of fat eighths that people have sent me, and I'll try to make blocks and mail them back soon. I also received my first block all the way from London. Here is Tricia's Tesselating Star, all hand sewn!
And here's the first Yankee Puzzle block I made and mailed to Denver. I chose Yankee Puzzle because, after 35 years of living here, I sometimes still don't understand Yankee ways. For example, some native Vermonters don't like to ask for help unless they can give back in some way. Yet, they are quick to help when asked.
One of the nicest things about the swap is that the 6" blocks fit in a regular envelope, so are easy to mail back.
