BROKEN DISHES BLOCKS FINISHED

 These are the broken dishes blocks to send to Barb here for the block swap.  They measure 4 1/2" square and there are 40 of 2 different fabrics.


I will be receiving 80 different blocks in exchange!  Lots of fun!












I just finished 2 doll quilts that will be put into my Etsy shop.  I love pink and brown together!



I bought this tote bag pattern at BJs quilt shop in Cloverdale, OR in August and decided to make 2 bags; one is with a charm pack that I also got there.


 Here's the front panel with the green charm pack squares sewn together and a brown batik which will be on the bottom of the bag.  I'm also making one with he Paris fabric.  Now I'm trying to find some fabric to use for the lining - I don't want to use just muslin, although maybe I will.


Have a nice week everyone!  The weather here is getting cooler!!

Your little blocks for Barb are really pretty, and I'm sure your bag will be too. I love the little pink and brown doll quilts. I'm thinking that's what I need to start doing rather than larger quilts. ---"Love"

Good job on the swap blocks, Ruth. They look well made. And I really like the pretty batiks you are using for the bag--but you know, I'm sure, that the doll quilts stole my heart. : )

Great job on the little broken dish blocks. I haven't finished one set yet. I better get to it this week. Lovely dolls quilts. I am starting to love pink and brown together too. (I didn't like pink very much before.) Enjoy the new bags. It is starting to look pretty good. ;^)

Nice points on the broken dishes blocks and I like the fabrics. It will be fun to see what you get in return. The doll quits are adorable, pink and brown go together so well. The new bag is looking very nice, can't wait to see both bags all finished!
