It really has been far too long since any kind of crafting was shown on this blog, so....
here is my initial dolly quilt for the Booty Swap, which is now not going to my swapee (I have other plans) in progress.
I remember reading something about challenging yourself when it comes to a swap - don't just make the same old thing you are good at, but find a new style, a new pattern, new colours, whatever!
I have had this book for some time now: Cut-Loose Quilts by Jan Mullen; she has a 'Crooked' style (very refreshing!) of Stack, Slice, Switch and Sew and have made a wall quilt from her Mainly Rectangles; three-patch units (see this post) , but decided to give her 'double squarez-in-squarez unit' (she loves her 'z's) a go - you have to follow simple maths but she lays it all out for you in the book.
Voila - too easy! Why was I so scared? I love this little one peeping from the side:
I threw the quilt onto our patch of purple Salvia - I know it's not finished, but I needed to post!
