April Block Swap Done

I am participating in a web block swap from Simply Solids.  It is a 12 month commitment.  Each of us takes a month to determine what block everyone in the group will make and send back to us.  We can predetermine the fabrics and send them to the other members or we can chose to go scrap/whatever and each of the group members will make the selected block from their stash.

This has been really fun so far and I have enjoyed making blocks that are new to me and interacting with new quilters.  My month is June and I have been trying out a couple of block choices.  I haven't made a decision yet but have a couple of finalists in the wings.

Our group is running a little ahead of schedule and we just received the pattern and fabrics from our April member this week.  Since I have some time commitments coming up I started right in and completed the block today.  It is complete and packaged to mail off on Monday.  

The pattern is available on Sarah's blog Stitching and Bacon if you want to make one for yourself.  She calls is Wonky Diamonds and it was really fun to make.  Here is a picture of the final block.

I like this block and had fun putting the color strips she sent anywhere I wanted.  It went together fast as well.  Go to her website and check out some of her other creations.

Really fun stuff.
