While I was at the quilt retreat I got a start on some blocks for my current Internet block swap. The swap is for pink and brown 6" blocks and I signed up for 2 different sets of blocks, Pinwheel and Basket. I got 5 of the paper pieced basket blocks done before I got tired of working on them (7 more to go for this set). They weren't difficult, except the handle piece had to be sewed on separately, which was a big PITA. I like the 2 colors of pink, so I think I might alter another pattern so that I can have both pinks, but with the block done in one piece.
I really love a pink and brown color combination...reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream. Yummy!
