While I am awaiting things I should be receiving soon from the swaps of April, I needed something to occupy myself while waiting.  I decided yesterday to join another little segment of the QT Mini swap for May.  I joined round #2 of the 3 1/2 mini blocks.  There are 9 of us in this round so 9 little 3.5 identical blocks are required.  My chosen color was hot pink.  I first was thinking of blue, but hot pink it was.  That color needed to be combined with black and white.  Today I got going and finished all 9 (thank goodness.)  They were really fun!  I combined my love of drawing, applique, and hand stitching.  All the white on the faces (other than the whites of the eyes) were hand stitched and I really think they have their own distinct personalities:

And here is a close up of just one so you can see it better.

How FUN!!! A single little block like this will add so much cuteness to an entire collection of black/white blocks. Very well done, Carol.
You have GOT to promise to show us all the ones you get back & put together.
