I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love that my partner for the Supernova swap hasn't cared about strict deadlines. I sent these blocks at the end of October and finally get to share the last of our blocks. We decided to make 12 blocks for our quilts so in October we exchanged two blocks.
This is the first of the blocks I made. I tackled the directional print again and only had one mistake between the two blocks. After ripping it out twice I decided to leave the wonky bit as is. I'm guessing you'll have to look closely to find the wonky section and wouldn't see it if I hadn't just told you it was there.
I did change my fabric choices for the last block so that I didn't have to mess with directional fabrics. I really like how this block turned out.
I love the blues in this block. I find it funny how many times during this swap we've used the same fabrics for that month's blocks.
And the last block for this quilt. Do you see the repeat fabrics in this one too? I know that since we're working from the same bundle it probably isn't such a coincidence, but it still makes me smile.
Since this was our last exchange for the Supernova Swap we also exchanged some quilty gifts. Cheryl sent me the black bag. I had planned on using it to store all of my quilting pens, but before I had a chance to move those in one of the socks I was knitting jumped in and made himself at home. The bag is the perfect size for holding socks in progress so it will probably stay with the knitting stuff.
I made the little wallet on the right from some of the fabrics I had leftover from my Weekender Bag. I was in the process of cutting out the pieces for the wallet and was really getting disappointed at the thought of giving away something so cute. Thankfully I had enough fabric that I was able to make two wallets. Now I think of Cheryl and our Supernova Swap each time I get out my wallet.
*The pattern is "Little Wallet" by Valorie Wells. I found this in a quilt shop several years ago so I don't know if it's still in print.
