Mini QT Swap and Bitty Blocks

I have just completed my first Mini QT Swap!  I was so lucky that my partner was none other than Dolores aka DeeRoo, a friend from the ORBC!  The theme was "Dots" so I had plenty of fabrics to choose from.  Here is the Mini QT I sent her.

It measures 12 x 12 inches and is machine appliqued with a small blanket stitch.

I included a few little goodies for her, too.

But I got the best part of the deal!!  Look at the wonderful mini she sent me:

Love the fireflies!!!  or as we call them, lightning bugs!

And look at the goodies she sent!  What cute fabric, and tapes and sticky notes.  I love it all, Dolores.

I have made blocks for the Bitty Block Committee this round, too.  The theme for this swap is tea pots/tea cups.  Twelve people to a group.

These are fussy cut from a Pillow and Maxfield fat quarter, fused and machine appliqued.  These blocks are only 3.5 inches square!!  Fun to do and you should see some of the creative and skilled work going on in the group!  What a talented bunch.

Meanwhile, the ORBC is gearing up for Round 10 - Crazy quilting.  That should be fascinating.  Join in if you like!
