One...Two...Three...Swap!...

So I joined a swap...haven't done a swap outside of the SSCS for ages...this one is part of a yahoo group for Kathy Tracy's Small Quilt Talk...make your partner a small quilt...good-oh...how hard can that be...apparently, very!...first the agonising over fabrics and patterns...couldn't make a decision...then...light bulb!!!...

First epic fail...

Start something else...Second epic fail...

Time was a-ticking...

Third time lucky...went together without a hitch...final stitch in binding last Thursday night...entrusted to Aussie Post this yesterday afternoon for its trip across land and water...
What? where's the quilt...well, I can't show that yet can I...that would be telling if my lovely swap partner happens to stop by...these are the pieces resulting from the epic fails...
Ha ha ha
(definitely not taken today...no blue sky happening lately)

Happy Stitching...

Well, if those are the fails, can't wait to see the actual quilt. I'm sure it will be stunning.

fails one and two???? they look great! I think you are way to hard on yourself! happy for that you found one that worked! :)

Maria said...

Ha ha! You sound just like me! The agonising about the 'what to do' and then the 'changes of plans', I can so relate to! Glad it all worked out and your swap buddy will be delighted I'm sure.

Deciding what to make is often the hardest part of a swap. The scraps look good, so I think your partner is in for a treat.
