Since I took an extended hiatus from sewing, I was in need of some "stimulating projects."  The first thing I "committed" too was Fat Quarters, Designer Mystery Block of the Month, using the beautiful fabric line Vintage Modern, by Bonnie & Camile.  OK, the "other reason" for signing up for this BOM, was I wanted to know something would be coming on a regular basis to my "new address." I wanted to know that at least once a month there would be "happy mail" to look forward to.

  How could this beautiful fabric not make you smile?

Then I saw the sign ups for this little quilt swap...


I watched and admired the first round of this swap and drooled over what the girls were creating.  They created little quilts and incorporated the persons name, blogger name, or name of their blog into the quilt.  I so, hoped there would be another round.  Well, there is and I am in!  This swap should get my creative juices flowing.  It is proving to be a good challenge.  We have secret partners and they have shared likes and dislikes and given a little info about themselves.  I so, want to do right by my partner and sometimes that takes thinking outside my box...  I have spent hours sewing in my head, constantly changing directions and, have nothing to show for it!  Oh, dear.  This time around the group has been a bit quiet (not much going on with conversation) in flicker but, projects are starting to pop in and again, they are awesome!!!
