I know about blocks in the mail from Laura and a block or more across town from France ... on Monday we'll know if Amy will br drawing 3 name or 4 when she choose the winner of all these blocks.

I pulled this pretty pink print with flowers and butterflies and had enough, I thought, to make the last three blocks. I forgot to cut the centers, then realized I only had enough fabric left to cut two 3.5 inch squares. After wondering if I might have/buy some other fabric to use for the center, I decided to make do and made this 9-patch center instead. I don't know if this block has a name of it's own, but I like it.
I'll be keeping this one and will likely make a few more of this variation and sprinkle them across my quilt.
Everyone else will receive a perfectly correct version of the block in one of four floral fabrics.
I've already received about half the blocks for this swap ... it will feel good to get mine in the mail and on their way to everyone this week.

Still, I thought I'd resist it, but when I easily found the specified background fabric last weekend in the first place I checked in Shipshewana, I had to sign up. We'll be swapping jewel-tone batik stars.
I don't know what happened to my once very under control urge to swap. Last weekend, I also signed up to swap 10" pink and purple squares ... I'm a hopeless.
Can you believe that before I've been able to getting around to blogging the April blocks, I've already received 21 more.From Janet–who also sent a cool seam-measuring tool, Thanx!
My redesign of the web pages for the Beginner Block Lotto isn't quite ready for prime time, so I went ahead and created a page like before with all the April blocks on it--check out the link in the sidebar or --> click here.
