Fair Squares

It's about time I showed off what I received from Julie in the Fair & Square exchange and the squares that I sent her.

Here are the squares I received from Julie. I really love the lavender colour - it's one of my favourites. Julie also included some fabric and a quilting magazine with some gorgeous designs in it.



Strangely enough, we both chose a quilting theme as I stitched some quilt blocks for her, using some of my favourite stitches.



On the first square the stitches are, from top left to bottom right, Satin stitch, Rhodes stitch, Rice stitch, Algerian eyelets. The eyelets were a bit of a nuisance, but I think the special stitches look good!
