Teacup swap blocks are done!

I have finally been let out of teacup limbo. All twelve blocks are done, pressed, trimmed and ready to mail. I have posted photos of individual blocks as they were completed, but here's a look at all twelve together.

I'm kind of psyched. I love them all. It's hard to give them away! That's about 50 hours of work hanging there. All are hand appliqued using freezer paper templates, and it was more work than I anticipated. I am eager to send them off and see what comes back to me. It will be a while, though, because the swap doesn't end until June.

Now there's time to work on the BOM blocks, the gift baby quilt and of course my own diamond log cabin. It's supposed to be chilly and rainy here tomorrow, so it will be a sewing day.

That's a lot of hours. They look so good together, it's not surprising you don't want to give them up. It will be interesting to see what you get!

Beautiful job! Can't wait to see what you get back in return. Hope others did as nice a job as you.

Very cute blocks....I can't believe you will be swapping these. Is this an internet swap or is it in the real world? They look so cute, I can't wait to see the finished quilt...Quilty hugs, Linda
