Crazy Quilt block swap

Recently Maureen and I had a swap with our Crazy Quilt blocks.
We eached pieced a block and then sent it to the other person who the did the embroidery and embellishing.
This is the block that Maureen pieced and I stitched on.




This is the block that I pieced and Maureen finished --the real colours are a wee bit darker than this photo shows.





Maureen also included for me a postcard that she had made as a memento of her trip to Japan.


Thank you Maureen for the swap I really like what you have done for me.

Both those blocks are so pretty Doreen and Maureen's Japanese postcard is lovely.

Another nice swap Doreen. It's a great way to learn new techniques, isn't it.

They both are simply lovely!! Now I am jealous and wish that I had been part of the swap! So whistle at me if you do this again, I love the CQ and the embellishing part is fun! Haven't done one to swap, and what did you ladies do with the finished product??

Thanks for being such a good sport over my delay in finishing your block Doreen.

I'm glad you had great weather in Perth.....my old home town.
