Since I haven't finished the quilt for my partner yet for the Fab Little Quilt Swap, I thought I'd show you something else. (Actually a few "something elses" lol) Remember when I was in the Potholder Pass and made these:
Well, look at at the cool ones I got in return:
They kinda look like I could have made them for myself, huh? They are SOOOO my taste? Well, Sue (beachgirlsews) had me for a partner and we've been paired up before, so she is pretty used to what I like and she nailed it on the head with those beauties. Think they will ever touch a hot pot? NOT!! Waaaay too pretty!
Then, we finally voted in the Little Quilt - Sew, Vote, Swap group (I always have to double check the name of that one, I get so confused with all these groups. Duh!!) so I'm able to show you what I made. I got the idea from someone's pinterest board.......(e-gads those boards come in handy sometimes).......they were paintings (and I looked them up to give proper credit by Lisa DeJohn,) that I thought would look perfect in fabric. Here is one of the drawings and the beginning:
And here they are, ready for shipping to a partner yet to be revealed. (That's the swap where we vote and what you get is a surprise depending on how your quilt fares in the voting....long process and I really can't explain the whole thing now.....) Anyway, I made a pair of quilts and called them, "Flowers - a pair". (Another one of my clever names, dontcha know???)
Each was 8 inches by 13 inches on a background of a very dark blue....."midnight" I think in the Kona line.
Then, I have something else in mind I want to try soon, so I searched the web and finally found what I needed and they are sooooo yummy:
Do you know what they are? 18 Hand Dyed fat quarters!! Beautiful hand dyed fabrics that are sooo gorgeous, you wouldn't believe it! I want to play and I hope things turn out like I have in my head. BUT, before I can do that, I have to finish the swap quilt for my partner and I'm telling you, this one is taking an age. I sure hope she likes it when it's done. You'll see soon..........probably next time!! Until then, have a great week!!! Spring is on it's way!!
