Quilt blocks for Christchurch.

I laid all my baby blocks out on the floor again last week, to see how they would look if they were joined up. I finally decided they would look better if each block was surrounded by sashing in a neutral colour. When I found a heap of dark blue cotton in my stash (that I'd pulled from the remnants bin at the Guild), I figured it would look well with the brightly colour blocks. I've made up two so far. As this is my first attempt at making blocks out of scraps in this way, they probably aren't perfectly lined up, but I'm hoping the ladies over the Tasman will be able to put them to good use. I'll have eight blocks in total when I've finished. What do you think? Be honest - I want to improve my skills here!
I promised myself I would finish this round robin this year, although I don't think it is on my UFO list, because all it needed was a border around it. Took me six years to get around to doing that border, and I'm happy with it!

Well I'm no quilter but the blocks look pretty good to me and I'm sure will be appreciated across the Tasman.

oh Gina, like L& R above, I am not a quilter, but I like the way the dark blue fabric Unites the pieces, making them less jumbled, and they look like each one is a 'part' of the whole. Lovely♥
