Hi! I've been off the forum for a while (guess I've been too busy with all my other swap blocks and about 1000 other projects...LOL)-- but this swap sounds too fun to pass up! Count me in when you get it going! Fall would be great...
Nice idea for a swap, Micki. I probably won't join in (am resisting joining block swaps until some of the blocks I have are at least joined into tops - notice I said "some" and not "all" LOL). Personally, I like the idea of having people pick two colours, but it would work well with one and neutral, too. Also a pattern that would look nice scrappy. I will follow along with interest!
1000 projects? yep you need another one <g> your not over commmited until you reach 1050 projects! <g>
keep checking back, I will probably start sign ups at the begining of August. ( after my nephews wedding is out of the way)
Sorry that you won't be able to join us. ( unless you decide that you haven't reached your 1050 projects and can take on 1 more.)<g>
I did make one of the these blocks and they are soooo easy! the worst part is after you cut the 4 strips out of the blocks to arrange them the right way. and that just means that you can't just grab and sew. I did find that to make sure that I kept the strips in the right order to sew, I used a piece of felt ( that I just happen to have sitting around for another project) and transfered it to my sewing table on that and I didn't have to make sure that I had the strips in the right order again. I made it with black and pink fabrics and I love it!
I am going to make another one with more scrappy and neutral fabrics and see how it turns out.
What size block would you prefer?
I don't promise to join the swap - I never seem to allocate enough time for sewing - but I could do the math for enlarging the block if you'd like.
Hmmm, I havent really thought anymore about it. Ill let ya know.
I went to a quilt show yesterday and saw a quilt that reminded me of your idea for this swap. It's at the top of this blog post:
Scroll to the bottom for a link to all my quilt show photos.
Oh my, that is so pretty! Thank you so much for the picture.
It just reaffirmed that I am going to have to do the swap. I will post the swap by the end of next week. This week is a little busy yet but next week is right before I go back to work and a good time to get going on something new. (even though I have plenty of other UFO's I could do something with.)
swap is posted!
look under swaps,
scrappy mountain majesties
