Fair Squares Update

FayeR was my partner for Round 18 and I stitched her a little redwork – pinkwork, to be more precise – I used DMC Variations 4120.

I also took the opportunity to finish to exchange pieces languishing in my finishing drawer. 

The first finish was for Round 16, and came from Mairi G in Melbourne (my first Aussie exchange partner). Don’t you think those nesting birdies are the cutest?  Thank You, Mairi

This one for Round 15 came from NadiaB in the Netherlands. The quaker design was just asking  for an octagonal finish, so I obliged.  Thank You, Nadia.
