...they challenge you... and
...they're pretty fun. :)
I sent my Doll Quilt Swap quilt, and Jennifer has received it. :)
This magazine supplied the inspiration and templates, and I think I've said it before, but this piece was such a testament to how my skills have grown... it's like I think in quarter-inches now, and can anticipate where the points will intersect.
The inspiration for this quilt was my partner's preferences. She said she loved neon, stars, squared up quilts, and "chartreuse, magenta, and gray" in particular.
The backgrounds are Kona Ash and Kona Coal; there are some Kona solids mixed with a little Plume and Flora and Fauna.
She says she liked it. I sure hope so.
I named it "80's rock star"
Interested in signing up for a swap? The "Modern Swappers" is currently open for sign ups now.
If you browse around their flickr pool (linked above), you'll see their last round produced some pretty cool stuff.
Disclaimers: You need to be an active flickr member (if you're not yet -- it's free, and will get your ready for the next swap that comes up!), AND you need to not be a flake, AND you need to be conscientious of your partner's preferences. :)
