Every time I tell myself I'm going to pare back a bit it seems something fun comes along that I just can't resist - like the Supernova Friendship Block Swap being hosted by Sandra of One Million Stitches and Stephanie of Late Night Quilter. The idea of pairing up with someone I didn't yet know and using the swap as a chance to collaborate and build a friendship (and make a quilt while we're at it ; ) seemed too fun to pass up!
I'm partnering up with Emily who blogs at The Raven's Craft, and can be found on IG. We've decided on a palette based on photos like these above, with yellows, pinks, and oranges against a Kona Charcoal background. I'm so excited to see how it turns out!
And now for my May Library Project update... these Wee Wander quilts have been quilted for weeks, but sadly set to the side awaiting binding while life has gotten in the way. I'm going to go ahead and link up and say that I really hope they'll be done very very soon. They're based on the Improvised Herringbone pattern found in Amy Ellis' Modern Basics II: 14 Easy Patchwork Quilt Patterns, and I have high hopes for showing them off finished with their coordinating shams and throw pillows - fingers crossed that I can find a day this week to trim and bind them and be done once and for all! (A little side note, after making three projects with this fabric, I am officially Wee Wandered out, so I'll offer up my scrap pile to readers when I get the finished post up : )
Linking up with The Library Project QAL, Fabric Frenzy Friday, and Sewjo Saturday.
