Penny Pincher 12 is ON

Wow, Its been forever since I hosted a swap. Life has hopefully settled down a bit and I am thrilled to be back into swapping blocks. We will be swapping friendship star blocks in 6 inch finished sizes. You can join the swap here. Hope you join us its bound to be lots of fun. Here is a mock up made by Misha for an idea of how the quilt might look in the end.

Nell's Penny Pincher 10 Quilt

Nell (VaNella) has completed her quilt with blocks from the penny pincher 10 swap. She is planning on using it for a picnic quilt. I love how it turned out and it looks like she has found the perfect spot for a picnic as well.
