Well, I had insomnia last week-up at 3am-nothing to do but surf the web. Made it to my favorite quilting forum and signed up for 3 different swaps.
A Red, White and Blue Swap. That means I make 12 of the same 12 inch blocks, mail them to the coordinator and she mails me back 12 different 12 inch blocks from 12 different people---then you make a quilt for yourself with all the blocks!
After on total disaster, I decided on this block:
The third is a secret quilt pal swap- you can only spend $10 dollars, so you get to see how creative you can be with all the scraps and stuff in the quilting room that won't cost anything to make---super fun!
