Teal We Meet Again swap

A few months ago I hosted my first ever Swap, A Blockwork Orange. Well it was such a hit and I had so much fun both hosting & participating, I've decided to host another one!

We will be making cross blocks (or plus blocks or you+me blocks, whatever your name of choice is!) in modern teal, red and white fabrics.

Teals, reds & whites
I absolutely love the color scheme, and these blocks have been on my "must try" list for quite some time.

Sign ups are open through this week (until October 2nd) and all blocks must be sent in by October 29th. If you are interested we'd love to have you join us! You can send in anywhere from 5 to... 500 blocks! (Please, for my own sanity, don't send in 500. Please)

Teal We Meet Again Blocks so far...

Some members of the swap have already dove in and got to work!


Dumbo's & Daisies quilt

I snuck in a little time this past weekend to finish up another baby quilt! I absolutely love the bright fuchsias and limes of this one, and the little elephants are too cute!


It measures about 48" x 30", the perfect size for a little lady or a baby quilt!
If you're interested, this little bundle of adorable cuddliness is available for $135!

All of my quilts are completely washable and made to be used... they can hold up to baby stains, everyday use and washings!

Like the quilt but not the fabrics? Check out some of my others here... I do make custom one's also!


A Blockwork Orange

As if I don't have enough going on, I up and decided I wanted to be in a modern block swap a few weeks ago.

When I didn't come across any with openings, I created my own!

Thus, A Blockwork Orange was born.

We have 29 members and are making Crazy Nine Patch blocks using Oh! Fransson's tutorial. It's a lot of fun so far, and I've already begun to receive packages from ladies who got done super early!

Everyone is using the yummiest orange fabrics and it's really getting me in the mood for spring!

Here are a few more pictures of completed blocks that I've pulled from our Flickr Photo Pool...Blockwork Orange Fourth 9

Aren't they looking awesome?!

Everyone is creating blocks in sets of 9 (as the tutorial demonstrates) and sending them in, once I get everyone's blocks I will send back the same amount of blocks but from a bunch of different sewists!

Who knew there were so many different orange fabrics?!
