I wrapped each up, placed them in identical envelopes, and sealed them. Then I mixed them up and wrote each recipients name of it. So I have no idea who's getting what FQ. Kinda makes it a little surprise for them and me too! So they're off in the mail today.
Also sending out Kat's June Block for Live Piecefully, and my Charlie Clutch to the winner of the SEWN giveaway, Why Not Sew?
So lots of mailing to do today.
I've also posted some pics of fabric available to swap - check out the pics here in the Flickr group. Let me know if you're interested!

I was able to get 39 12.5" squares. We're in Week 4 of the quilt-a-long and are piecing together the quilt top. But when I put mine together like so (see below), I find it's too busy. I'm not crazy about this fabric to begin with, because it's too traditional for me, so this placing is not winning me over.
I think I'll have to insert some sashing, maybe cut up some more blocks...i dunno. I'll figure something out.
If you're not in the quilt-a-long, go check out the groups Flickr page...lots of pretty stuff happening there! It's crazy to see how many are doing this project together!
The winner has been chosen!!!

So with the start of June came my first ever experience with the Live Piecefully virtual quilting bee. June is Kat's month, and she sent out these beautiful Tree Top Fancy prints. I have done improv quilting before, but not quite like this. I was terrified to cut into it thinking "this isn't my fabric". But I did it and here's the result. I quite like it...I made a boo-boo so that's where the thinner border came in. I hope she likes it! To check out the other blocks, go to the Live Piecefully flickr group - we're just getting started, so there's lots more to come.
