Today I finished my blocks for the teacup swap on my favorite online group. I made 12 blocks but I only used three different color combos. Can't wait to see what I get back from the swap. I have some plans for most of them for a Christmas gift.

Since I like the teacups so much, I made that our first lottery block. This is the one I made. It's even brighter in person. We'll get together in October and someone will win all the blocks made (right now only 4). Next month's lottery block is a jack-o-lantern. My favorite colors! I sure hope it all works out, it's a nice group of ladies and I hope to get them to love paper piecing as much as I do.
I hosted a teacup block swap on one of the groups I belong to. I only made 3 blocks so I put them together into a small wallhanging. It came out pretty good. I liked it so much I'm using the same blocks in a project for a small group I'm starting up in our guild. I'm hosting another teacup swap on another group. I'm making 12 blocks for this one so I can make a bigger wallhanging and I plan on adding a teapot. I hope it comes out good! They'll probably both end up as Christmas gifts. I have someone in mind.
I recently joined the local quilt guild and they were having a silent auction fund raiser and needed donations, so I made two table toppers. I used the 4000 member celebration block from my favorite on line quilt group. They came out pretty good and were very easy to make.
