I splurged on a milk jelly roll basic from moda. When I figured out the cost of yardage there was very little difference in price. I have lots of ideas on how to use it. One of them is my red/aqua swap that I have completed and mailed.

I did not put it up on my design wall this time because I was definitely afraid I would keep it. I have a great idea for this quilt. I bought a some fabric for the border that I think will work really well with the red and aquas. If not I can always find another use for it.

I would also like to say a big thank you to Ariane. I had originally wanted to make presents for my Christmas block swap but I could not find any patterns large enough. Ariane bought a maple leaf pattern from Piece by Number. I went there to check things as I love paper piecing and I found Christmas presents! I was so excited and now that is the block I am going to be making for the exchange.

Finally, for my friend Julie, Go Phillies Go!

Gosh you used great fabric, now do not forget to make a set for me, we are swapping, right?

Where did you get the jelly roll? I have cutting 2 1/2" strips!

Ariane said...

I love your aqua and red blocks. I don't know if I could have given them up. I'm glad I was able to help you find a Christmas Gift pattern. I really love her paper pieced patterns. They are so nice. I can't wait to see your blocks.

I felt the same way about my swap not to put them up on the design wall and get attached to them!
