the thing about swaps...

Pin It ...they're addicting...
...they challenge you... and
...they're pretty fun. :)

I sent my Doll Quilt Swap quilt, and Jennifer has received it. :)

"80's rock star" for dqs9

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.

dqs9 - look at those points

See? ;)

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. :)

I'll be back later today or tomorrow morning for the next step of the Chubby Stars Quilt Along. :)

I'm not nearly confident enough in my abilities to join a swap, but I sure do like watching what others create and receive! Great job!

It's beautiful ~ the colors, the design, everything! Great job on AWESOME points!

Brooke said...

Is this swap for a specific item? The flickr photos looked like a conglomeration of things.

Poppyprint said...

How could she not like that? You rocked it!

Beautiful little quilt - I love the colors and the name - and I think it's not the only Rock Star around here!!

I have never joined a swap, probably because, like Vesuviusmama, I haven't been confident enough in my skills; or because I haven't been organized enough to get one going with my friends who I'm comfortable with. I think yours turned out great. Way to go!

I absolutely love this. I think my favorite part is the quilting!
