a bit of patchwork...

Post by Scrap Monkey on Sun 12 May 2013 - 19:19

Just the one for now, April's block swap, which I sent to a lady in France; fabric courtesy of Lynda!



I have just about finished a bag too, but need to attach the handles, so will take a photo if the sun ever shines again, possibly later un the week Rolling Eyes

I like that.
Do you specify colours so that people send you something that will go together at the end?
Show us what you receive please.
I think I might like to do this in the future.

All the blocks are 12", and yes, we all specified up front what our colour schemes were. Mine is black and white, have had some funky ones so far, will take pics. I think we swap for 11 months, then make the last one ourselves.

With some sashing (extra strips between each square and all round the edge) it would make up to a single bed quilt, Kim.
