Jewel tone friendship stars - up for grabs


Here's this week's offering in my little giveaway game - still quite a stack of bits and pieces to get through, believe it or not. These are some 8" blocks from a swap - there's nothing wrong with them, in fact, they are pretty (the corners are navy blue) but I had a silly number of them (18) so I decided to keep a more appropriate number (16) and pass the other two on. [I appreciate you can set 18 blocks 3x6, but as they are only 8" wide, I don't really like the resulting shape, whereas a 4x4 quilt with a border of some sort will make a nice little baby quilt, don't you think?] I think these two were repeated fabrics or very similar to others, so they were the ones chosen to pass on. Of course, I haven't done anything with the other blocks yet, but I will, soon. I do have a couple of baby quilts "in stock" at the moment, although I have just given one to a friend who is more or less ready to pop and I have two more pregnant friends who are a little less far along, so I imagine I'll be needing to restock before too much longer.

Anyway, if you are interested in rehoming these little guys - no obligation to do anything with them at all, though if you win something from me and DO do something with it, please let me know so I can link or put up a photo or just be impressed - just leave a comment on this post before Sunday, when I will draw a winner.

I can always find a place for those lonely blocks. By the way I finally got the top done with the red and black scrap blocks I won from you, just have to quilt it now. I send you a photo when its done.

I have no idea what I would do with them, but I'll think of something if I win them!
Happy days,
Joanie

I wasn't going to put my name in this time but got to thinking -- I could add these to some of my orphans to make a cuddle quilt for the quilt guild charity.
