Around The World Swap

The Friendship Group is doing an Around the World Swap this spring.  Everyone picks a pattern twelve inch block to make in the other participants fabric.  I have been working on mine.

This is a picture of six of the ones that I have finished. I love the way the corners fit into another element of the pattern, it would be great to have a quilt with this. The pattern is from Quilters Cache, called Carol's star so I thought it was fitting for me to use it.

 Debbe M had a flowered pattern fabric so I used greens with hers. And a fussy cut appliqued flower in the center.
 Jennifer sent a dark green/blue batik forest flower fabric.
 Tricia sent a blueish leaf fabric so I added the gold and some of Jennifers green to hers.
 Linda sent a thirties fabric to combine with the blues and yellows.
Cindy sent a fabric with lots houses and shops that I used as the backgrounds.
I have received two back with my eagle fabric.

This is my block made in my fabric.

First Finish in 2013

I thought today would be a good time to post my first finish for the challenge of completing 13 UFO's in 2013.  So my first [In the first month - January] on the 13th day is my Queen Minisofine from a mystery quilt from 2011.

This mystery was done on Paper Panache with her mystery Fairy Qyilt Godmother.
Here she is after I finished with the hand quilting.

 The Queen is now up on the wall in my bedroom, I'm afraid the gold wall makes her look more yellow than she is.
