I've been sewing and quilting the last few days, but I can't post about it because both things I made this week are gifts for people that read this blog! :) I don't want to spoil the surprise.
I did receive a couple of swap blocks recently and I can share those! Liz hosted a fun and easy 4 patch swap in two color ways....either 30's and white, or civil war repros and shirtings. I love this idea she came up with for her 30's blocks and I decided to copy her idea! LOL The problem I found though, is that the civil war/shirtings fabrics don't have as much contrast as the 30's blocks do and the design doesn't pop as much.
What do you think? I'd love to make a small wall hanging out of these...or I can wait until after the new year and Liz has promised to have another round of the swap!
Another swap I participated in was over at Patchwork Corner yahoo group...all the fabrics are Thimbleberries. I'll need to make three more blocks and decide on borders, but this should be an easy one to finish up! Famous last words, huh?
