Various projects including Orca Bay - part 2

This is my 12th completed block of the Civil War Bride quilt. Its a very time consuming project so along with other projects I do, I aim to complete one a month. 
Next one will probably be done next year.

Another on-going project I've been doing for a couple of months is the Farmer's Wife quilt. Teresa and I swap blocks and these are the latest blocks we exchanged.

She made me these...

And I made her these...

 She also made me this cute mat which is now decorating my newest fabric cupboard...
I love the fact that she embroidered my name on the applique flower.

And now part 2 of ORCA BAY.  I choose yellow. 

I cut strips from some of my stash and cut 3 3/4" squares of paper from an old phone book.
I have never used this technique before but it was really easy and quick (but very messy). Even removing the paper was quick provided the stitch lenght was very small.

And these are my little guys ! 72 blocks measuring 3 1/2 "... Love them !
