Craftster Lap Quilt Swap: chinarockfishakm, flashleyashley, and jqadams

I finished up some more of my blocks for the Craftster Lap Quilt Swap this weekend. The one above is for chinarockfishakm. I really like the oriental fabrics she chose and the orange fabric has glitter!
This block is for flashleyashley. Her palette is beautiful! I love the soothing blues and greens she picked out. The picture does not do justice to these colors.
John sent these fabrics with an oriental flair. He wanted straight lines and improvisational type blocks. I wanted to showcase the birds in this print so I kept is simple and framed the center square. I like how the red floats above the green. It is 12.5" square.

He also asked for blocks in many sizes so the one above is 9.5" square.
I then made two more 6.5" square ones for him. I was fun playing with the different sizes.

I am almost done! I believe I only have one more block left to make! That is 21/22 blocks complete. Woohoot!

The block for me is so pretty. I love it!
I agree about making John's blocks as well; the different sizes were really fun to make.

I love those blocks. Especially the first of Johns. Ashley's colors are wonderful. I've only 3 more blocks to go! Yahoo~!
PS - my security word is dercie, almost Darcy (as in Mr. Darcy) but then I'm partial to that timeframe. Find Austen hard to read, but love the movies. Prefer to read Thomas Hardy.

Yahoo!! My blocks look awesome! I can't wait to see them in person. I finished up my Craftster blocks this weekend, too. This round seemed to go by SO much more quickly ... probably because of the holidays.

Beautiful blocks. I like the orange and blue combo in the oriental block. The calm of the sand and sea block. And the block with the bird in the center is great. Showcases the birds beautifully.
