Blocks complete!!

Hooray! These little beauties are done :) Im really happy with the way they turned out. They are bright and cheerful but... I did make a mistake. I made them quite large. I have no idea what i was thinking when they were cut. Rather than a 5.5" square they were cut 6" so they are rather.. um.. large. The recipient was pleased though which Im happy about. Here are some pics. It feels so good to complete a job!

Four x letter sides

Two x picture sides (the pics correspond to the letter on the block)

Thanks to my lovely hubby for doing the photography and my mum for trucking up to the other side of melbourne with me to deliver these.

On the way to the drop off, we stopped by a shop called "Patchwork with Gail B" (abit of a mouthful). If you are in Melbourne or thereabouts I'd highly recommend it. Its in Bayswater but worth the drive! Ive never seen so much quilting fabric! Mum and I couldnt spend too long in there as my kids had just spent an hour in the car and were like windup toys buzzing around, but we do plan to go back... very soon!

To see more lovely creative spaces head over to Kootoyoo.
