Recently I signed up for two swaps . The first was a new sew block exchange hosted by Kathleen. My choice was Star of Virginia for the red, white, and blue group. I finally got my fabric cut today, well almost. I decided to sew my block together to see how it looked.
I had a whole bunch of white squares left, the fabric that I ran short on. I was so mad at myself for messing up the cutting. I looked at the pattern again and realized I should have followed the directions and not just gone on memory. After a lot of time with my seam ripper I found it's actually to look like this:
So yes, I still need a little of the white fabric, but I'll hopefully have the block kits in the mail by the end of the week.
The other swap is an I Spy swap. Now that I signed up and explained it to my boys they both want an I Spy quilt so I guess I'm going to have to find another one to sign up for so I can get more blocks to work with. Here are the fabrics I purchased for this swap.
Hopefully I'll get to the post office by this weekend because I have a lot of things I need to mail out.


  1. Ooops. But both blocks look good... you could change your block choice if you want...
    Love your I Spy fabrics. I'm planning on hosting an I Spy swap when the No Sew swap in finished.... I need more blocks too!

  2. What a wackadoo you are! Just kidding! Everything looks great!

  3. Hi there Sara ... your cut squares look great! I can hardly wait for all these i.spy fabric swap parcels to arrive!

  4. i messed up with cutting my block for the no-sew swap, too....argh...oh well....

  5. I am in both those swaps too, but I am in the green/pink for the no sew. I can't wait to get going on both it and the I spy!
