Another Wednesday already?!
This is my biggest accomplishment this week:
Amy asked me to host a charm swap for the participants in her 4x5 modern quilt bee. We did the colors a little different for this round. Instead of my standard color wheel swap we did basic colors (ROYGBV) and then added in the most popular colors chosen by participants for the bee (pink, aqua, citron, mustard, tangerine, black & white, grey and brown). It was a really fun swap. The three kiddos and I took 40+ packages to the post office today. Everything is officially in the mail. To reward them for being such good kiddos this morning while I packed everything up, we played this at McD's this afternoon for almost 2 hours. They were nice and tired for naps.
Once I recover from this swap, I'll be gearing up to do it again. I'm a bit addicted. Here's my question for those who are interested in participating--would you prefer the basic 12 colors from the color wheel or a swap using the colors above?
My sewing this week consisted of finishing up two bee blocks and that's about it.
Emily asked us to design the center patchwork section with anything we'd like. I had New York Beauty blocks in mind when designing this paper piecing section.
Finally, don't forget the link-up next week for Slash the Stash. Get working on those projects. It doesn't have to be something completely finished, just something you're using your stash to complete. Also, we may have something fun from Brenda over at Pink Castle Fabrics! Stick around!
Linking up to Lee's this week.
