Chester County Criswell Quilt - Block Swap

I was thrilled to see that my little Chester County Criswell block #9 arrived safely to Carole last week. What a delight to see it's twin (the block for me) next to it in her photo before it's journey across the ocean.

Today the block that Carole (Wheels on the Warrandyte Bus blog) made for me arrived today YIPEE!! It was enclosed in a cute Koala card that looks so push and furry! (She has seen Koalas right in her area - way cool!)

Doesn't the block look great? And you should see the skillful tiny stitches! It will really add to the special feelings and memories I am making and already have about each block going into this quilt. Thank you Carole!!! Who wants to be next to swap a block? It is very fun!!

Lovely swap block for you Wanda. Carole and I are going to swap but I'm not quite organised yet. I love your cover photo - are the three blocks all your own work?

So glad to see that my block arrived safely, many thanks for the opportunity to swap. I love your new header - is that fleur de lis block from the Sarah Morrell quilt?

Hi Carole,
The fleur de lis (and stars) are from Elly Sienkiewicz Baltimore Beauties and Beyond book.

The circular block is my own design inspired by book "Leaving Baltimore: A Prarie Album Quilt" by DeArmond, Lang & Spitzli.

I LOVE the look of the Morrell quilt but do not have that pattern.

Thanks again for the fun swap and your awesome handwork!

Well - I guess my note is meant for you both!
