I am so excited to get started on this quilt! This one will be for my bed so it's doubly exciting. I have the pieces all cut and ready to go for quilt retreat this weekend, so we'll see how many blocks I can make.
I joined two swaps this month - my first ones ever online - and so far so good. I've sent off my charm squares for Ellison Lane Quilts I Spy Charm Swap already so my part is finished.
I also joined the Japanese X and + block swap on flickr and have 15 blocks made for that. I just need to get it together and mail those out stat!
This started out as a mug rug gift for a friend and quickly became a mini quilt size. Also headed to retreat to finish the top & quilt it.
This will also be a mini wall quilt. It's inspired by In Color Order's Giant Vintage star quilt and scaled down to the size I want. I'm using all polka dot fabrics in different colors for this - can't wait to see it come together.
