Swap blocks

As mentioned in this post, I'm doing a block swap with some of the members of the Scandinavian Fabric Swap list. I didn't stitch much through the holidays, but I managed to finish my 16 blocks, and got them sent off. This is how they all looked:

They look like a pretty collection, don't they. I hope the ladies like them!

Today the first blocks from one of the other ladies arrived to me - Heidi has sewn Balkan Puzzle and Mississippi - look at these pretty reds:

I have asked for blocks in red and white, and I think this will be a fun quilt :o) I have started playing with ideas of how to set them, but haven't really decided yet - I'll wait till I see how all the blocks plays together.

Hope you have had a creative week so far!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Your blocks do make a pretty collection - what are the names of the blocks? I don't think I have ever seen the one on the bottom before.

Will you get different blocks i.e. not the same pattern from each swap partner? Your blocks look great.
