So far these are the blocks I've received from my Sew Pieceful swap on Flickr. I asked for turquoise, olive, and hot pink/magenta on a white background. I think they came out great.
They're hard colors to have people match, not like orange or red, so I was prepared with an open mind. Individually, there are off colors, but when you put them all together, it works! I might add some white sashing in the end to make them look more cohesive.
I signed up for the next round as well, so I'll be adding more blocks to these by the end of the month, but that also means that I need to start figuring out what block to make for my group. I'm thinking I might try out the Broken Herringbone from Play Crafts, especially since Molli Sparkles has started up a Broken Herringbone Quilt-A-Long.

I don't know if I have it in me to make a whole quilt of these blocks, but I can certainly do four blocks to send to my group. It looks pretty precise, and I tend to get tired quickly of being precise. I haven't actually read through the tutorial, just the tips and blurbs on Molli Sparkles' blog, but I was too busy giggling to take in any actual information. I think that's something better left to a quiet day down in the basement sewing dungeon.
