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.
