Swaps

I fell off the Earth for awhile, I know.  I blame Instagram.  My family still looks here rather than there so I ought to get back with the blogging.
I've been swapping!  It's so fun.  I am assigned a partner to secretly make for and someone is secretly assigned me.
In my first swap, I got a cute cross stitch heart mini made by Jennifer in Australia.  She sent treats, too, which the kiddos still talk about.  The quilt went on my wall right away and looks great there.  The quilting community really is just awesome.

I just sent off the mini I made for my second swap.  It's headed to England and should arrive any day now.  I am so anxious for my partner to see it!  I had so much fun brainstorming and making it for her.

I call it a quarter medallion since it's just a quarter of a medallion style quilt.  The quilters she said she liked all had a medallion quilt and our tastes were similar enough that I thought I could come up with one she would like.
In the next couple weeks, or days, I'll receive the mini quilt made for me.  The kiddos and I have been following the group on instagram and guessing which is for me.  The kiddos are hoping for more Aussie candy, truth be told.
