ready to mail

I got my cutting done for Kathleen's No Sew Block Swap and they are ready to send. She opened up another group so I am in 2 of them now. There was a poll for pastel vs brights and any green/pink won. Hope the pastel crowd is not disappointed.

I also found a second swap to participate in, Rachel's Modern Siggy. She is taking the first 100 swappers and posted a tutorial for the siggy block. This swap will result in squares for a charity quilt as well which is cool.

I started cutting for this with the materials I had out for the other swap only to run out of my favorite white fabric ... the Ikea sheet introduced by Crazy Mom Amanda Jean. I bought one to try out in October and have been cutting on it since and am SOLD on it. So much that I am considering braving the elements to go to Ikea today ... we'll see how brave I am.

What is your favorite white fabric?


  1. Have fun with the swaps. I was thinking about doing Rachel's but I will have to pass this time.

  2. I love your Pink & Green blocks....Rachel's swap filled up fast - it was closed by the time I got there.

  3. oh oh love ur blocks....I'm so excited I get one!!!

  4. Ah - I see you did make it into the siggy swap. How lucky! And I love your no sew blocks. Awesome fabric choices!

  5. isnt this swap going to be a fun thing? i cant wait to put them all together for a cherished quilt/hanging for my sewing space!! love your blog too by the way!

  6. Hi Diane..thanks for coming over to my blog to say hello. We are living near Sacremento now, but also lived in the Bay Area for a short time.
    I am excited to get going on my blocks. I will order my fabric this week, since the store I went to here didn't have a great selection.
    Can't wait to see what we all get. Have a great day !

  7. Diane, what great pinks and greens! I am getting ready to cut my fabrics. Did you prewash yours? I'm in your first group and want to do it correctly.

  8. Oh that pink and green is so fun!

    The IKEA sheet is a great idea. I'll have to try it. I've just been using Kona Cotton White and have been happy with that so far. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great day!
