i participated in my first craftster swap in years, and i have to say i thought it would be easy. but i was wrong. i thought a quilt block swap would be a piece of cake to have some crafting going while dealing with school work at the same time, but so many other things came up, and i easily got burnt out after my first few block sets. i did managed to get them all finished in time the day before send outs, and they were on their merry little way. here are all the blocks i created for this quilt block swap:
quilter's choice - paper pieced
i think my favorite new block from this set has to be the ribbon star block. while i had some serious "not reading the directions completely" issues and lots of seam ripping (with the help of my mom) it all came together in the end. i also am quite pleased with the bigger of the star blocks from the paper piecing set. which is a good thing, as i plan to use that pattern to make a quilt for my bed... still have a twin sized quilt on a queen sized bed. soon enough that will change!
here's to hoping that in posting this, i'll be more inspired to get crafting again.
well, december is coming up, and i know i have some plans in store for the first 25 days of that. it's just the act of getting there now. ha!
