Swap Projects Finished!

I took advantage of the three-day weekend to finish my swap projects that were coming due.  For the Friendship Bag Swap, I made this one for my partner using Rachel’s tutorial and some Hello Betty fabrics I had left over from projects for my shop.

I included a couple goodies for my partner’s sewing room too. I think it’s a fun bag for fall, so I hope she likes it.

I made this mini quilt for my partner in the Summertime Mini Quilt Swap. My partner listed her preferences as Americana and Civil War reproduction fabrics. I don’t have any of those types of fabrics in my stash or much experience with those themes, so I used some fabrics from the Zippity Do Da honey bun I won from Moda earlier this year.

This was my first attempt at making a log cabin block! I know, can you believe that after making quilts for ten years, this is the first time I’ve ever made a log cabin block?!

I am happy to report that I put a simple label on this one, which is a first for me. I do hope she likes what I came up with.

I tend to be a procrastinator so it’s a relief to have these finished and ready to ship. I’m not signed up for any other swaps (yet), so I’m going to work on projects for my shop and  for the holidays.

  1. Oh I absolutely love the bag. I keep forgetting about that tutorial but maybe I can sew one this weekend just for fun. I think the Hello Betty fabric was a perfect choice.
    I know your swap partner will love the quilt. It’s difficult to sew things for someone that has a different style but I think it looks great. I am not one for the Americana fabric either but that zippity do da line is just right for the project. 🙂

  2. I’m with you on that procrastination thing. Why do we do that?

    I love that Hello Betty fabric. I bet your swap partner will be thrilled with her bag. The quilt is a dandy, too. Very Americana. Lovely. Lovely.

    Happy Weekend,
