Friendship X and plus swap : January blocks.

The last Friday of the month has come and gone which means I should have shown this months blocks in the Friendship x and + swap.
In previous months myself and my swap partner Jane have chosen three colours from our palette from which to make our four blocks. 
As we've discovered that there are a possible 20 colour combinations from the 6 colours we've now decided to pick two 3 colour combinations each month in order that we can use as many of the combinations as possible in the quilt.
This month we chose:
Dark Green, Yellow, Red.
Navy, Light blue, Red.

 
I must just point out that the navy polka dot fabric looks lighter in the photo than it actually is. 

I'm now all set to start February's blocks.
If you'd like to see what fabulous blocks the other swap members have come up with the the Flickr group can be found here.

These are great, especially the bottom left. Have just cut about 90 three inch squares, so sitting down for a minute!

Dark green, yellow and red are 3 colours I would never have thought to put together, but they look really good :-) Look forward to seeing the finished quilt!

I love the bottom two! I've had my eyes out for red white and blue combos that aren't painfully patriotic. This is very much like what I'm thinking! :)

I love that top left hand one especially the dark green fabric with what look like mini oranges, it's gorgeous!
