Here's my thinking process:
This Quilt was given to me from a friend when I moved to Nashville (back in the 80's) and I have cherished it forever. It's so soft and cuddly and Brooke has decided to claim it. But I re-claimed it last week :) It's actually the only handmade quilt I've even owned.
So....my way of thinking is ....I love white/cream!! and because I love those colors why not use them on my first quilt. I've started runners and made purses and started a Rag Quilt Throw......but this one will be my first. Since I'm such a sentimental person I know I will hold on to it forever (once it gets made).
Here's the block I like the best :) I made quiet a few yesterday and will show you those in the future.
If we all use the Clear Circle Flower Die.....our Quilt would kinda look like the butterflies. They're
I'm toying with moving the flower up and adding a stem but if I add more..... then that would make it more time consuming and it would cost more. Is it too simple for ya'll?
So, those of you that are interested....what do you think?
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This swap is only for Stampin' Up! demonstrators that are going to Convention.
I"m about 90 % sure I will host a swap when I get back... I made ten blocks last night and it went super fast. But I also know it's because they are simple.
For the ladies that have been quilting for years I realize this may be too simple for you and I'm sorry. Since I'm new to sewing/quilting I've found the ladies interested are coming from beginners like myself.
Please let me know if you're interested asap so I can email everyone the details.
p.s. Here's a couple more pictures :)
p.s. I've decided to use the Ivory Bella Solid over at the Fat Quarter Shop. Click here to go there now. If for some reason the link doesn't work...you can click on the Fat Quarter shop button on the right side of my blog and when you get there, click on Moda Solids. Then find the Ivory SKU#9900-60. I choose this one because it's $5.75 a yard and everyone has access to online ordering. I order from them frequently and the shipping is reasonable and pretty fast.
