Colorado Beauty.........

This block is part of a BOM for an online group........
....each month someone picks a new block.........
The blocks are 12 1/2 inch unfinished........
I love the prints............more burgundy then brown
This bundle of fabrics is a swap with my friend Carole.
She wanted a cookbook I showed on my blog so we traded for fabric.........she
has a patchwork shop in the USA Fibre Junction Quilt Shoppe and specialises in
reproductions..........this is what she sent in return for the
cookbook.................I am very happy.........
Catch you later..............

  1. Hi Chookblue, I don't know what the cookbook was but with that bundle of fabric I think you won on the deal. Love the block too, it would make an interesting quilt alternating the pos and neg colours I think.
    have a great week
