Block Swap Blocks!



Finished up my blocks for a swap I joined on Flickr.  It was my first swap, so I was a bit nervous about the time commitment, but it looks like so much fun when other people do it.


This one might be my favorite, probably because they're totally my colors!

The way this one works is that you pick some colors, and send it out to the Flickr-verse and you get paired up with five other people who send you colors.  Then you choose a block pattern to make and make it five times in the colors that the other people have chosen, and just send it on to them.


This is supposed to be low-volume.  The fabrics low separately, but I think their volumes have added up to too loud.  We'll see.  

Love that it's super quick, since you don't have to wait for other people to send you their fabrics, or learn how to make a bunch of different blocks.  And, with this group you can jump in for a month or jump out for a month, depending on how crazy life is.




This was my mosaic for the group to use.  I've been wanting to make myself a quilt from these colors for a while, but selfish sewing always tends to get shoved to the bottom of the to-do list.  But, this was the perfect opportunity to use this, and I can't wait to see the blocks all together in person.
