Manuela sent these two sweet christmas blocks
all the way from PORTUGAL!
We were told how to make these blocks by Beth.
And then she paired us all up with another
quilter interested in swapping!
Here are the four blocks I recieved so far.
Don't they look fun together?
Beth encouraged us not to make ALL of them
RED and GREEN.
I look forward to getting two more blocks...
maybe I'll make....
I'm almost there.
Just the quilting to go.
I changed that center just a little to make it fit in more
with the color scheme.
The little circles and one of the leaves were added.
I also did that little bit of embroidery at the bottom.
(Thought I should cover their last name since I
don't know if they want me to splatter their name
all over blogland!)
I added that soft yellow around a couple of times...
Thanks to Mama Pea who recommended
some gold for the golden anniversary!
(Not quite gold, but it seemed to match)
I'm off to do some quilting!
