A couple of pillowcases in a fairly rare dark blue print:

Fortunately I also had the UK and Ireland Vintage sheet swap going on. I think in the end we had 11 swappees and 200 or so FQ’s! I was so intent on sorting and attempting to meet requests for particular colours that I neglected to take any photographs.

Judith was also incredibly quick off the mark and made up a block:
She then sent off some fabrics to her Brit Bee ladies who have made up blocks for her, so you may see them popping up on other blogs too!
Jan found that the arrival of the fat quarters helped her find her sewing mojo and quickly sewed up a quilt top:
And I’ve been sewing with mine too:
