marimekko projects and non-photos of another project

My friend who visited last month just recently bought a condo in the US. We both went a little crazy at Marimekko during her visit and I have a few projects I'm working on for her new place with the fabric she bought. Apparently she did a little more shopping at Marimekko after leaving Vaasa and before leaving Finland - and she kindly sent me these gifts as a thank you! I love the fabric used for the bag - as you can see, I bought a meter+ from a remnant bin on our travels! The pillowcases will match the duvet cover I'm making from 6€/m fabric! Thanks so much!

I'm participating in a Round Robin for the first time. Unfortunately, we can't post photos of our center blocks so that there's an element of surprise. I had fun with the colors I chose for the center and look forward to the next round. Margaret, the host, asked us each to send two blocks for some charity quilts in lieu of postage, and these are the two I sent.

I love the Marimekko fabrics and the first charity block is gorgeous.

You are brave taking part in Round Robin, I would have a big problem in deciding what to do when my turn came if I took part.
