Some might wonder why I don't post more finished projects, so thought I might take you on a journey through the process of hosting a swap. The swaps you'll see here are from the BlockBuddy Yahoo group.
First step is to select a swap. We have several running at the same time. The most popular right now are the Chicklets, an invention of my imagination. Chicklets are 4 1/2 inch four patches using white on white and a flavored gum color. The flavor of the month was grape.
|Lots and lots of grape chicklets!!|
|Just love all the colors!|
|Classic blue and white--can't wait to start assembling the top!|
A quick and easy block is the Double Four Patch. If you'd like to try this versatile block, directions are located here: http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltblocklotto/ss/january07_lotto.htm . Saw one in a recent quilt show--just love the classic blue and white set in a visually pleasing way.
|Dozens and dozens of half-square triangles! Oh, the possibilities!|
And, we swap 2 1/2 inch strips called "Zippy Strips."
|Waiting for the mail carrier to whisk away the squishies to their new home!|
