Goings on . . .

A few months ago I joined in a Patchwork swap
with a very energetic lady from Kansas, USA
Marcel from www.auntpittypats.blogspot.com
I made 40 Disappearing 9 Patch Blocks
. . . blogged about earlier . . .
I sent my 40 off to Marcel
& she did all the swapping on our behalf . . .
So not so long ago I received
in th
e mail 40 different blocks!
Yay!
Thanks again Marcel!
It was a great way to create an interesting effect
in a really simple way!
My friend Lizzie had a go too . . . with her own fabrics!
Hey Lizzie - maybe I c
an get a photo to show?

So here are my results!
Above: All laid out under construction
(I decided not to use all 40
as not all the colours worked together)

& Below: The finished top all sewn together.
I had made a few extra of my own so they are the repeats
& I added in some extra strips on the sides . . . all balanced!
I of course haven't progressed any further than this!
Great fun!
Not sure - Do you think it needs a border?
