Hello, It’s Me

Yes, well.  Clearly, life here slipped loose and got away from me.  I am pleased to say, however, the madness has dissipated and I am once again in control (or as much so as I ever am).  It was so nice to have some of my blogging and swap friends check in on me – and I am really touched by that, so thank you so much.  Quilters truly are the best.

So, here’s some of what’s been happening as I desperately have been trying to catch up!

First, the placemat swap where I once again had fun with tessellating pinwheels.  It was one of those coincidences where both my swap partner and I used red and white fabrics (I’ll have photos of what I received in a day or two):

There’s the S.T.U.D. nothing square or rectangle swap (I really loved the colors on this one):

The Mini QT Chinese Coins swap (this one measured about 12 inches square) – I do love working with those Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

Add in a couple of block swaps:

And, the Diamond in a Star quilt top which I’ve called Summer of Love because it came out so 60’s exuberant.  The photo isn’t very good.  Perhaps I’ll catch a better one once the quilting is done.  Meanwhile, the reproduction version is in process and I’ll have photos up soon – as well as the long awaited directions for making up this pattern.

I do believe a giveaway is in order so I’ll have something along those lines coming up soon.

Meanwhile, it’s good to be back.  Today’s my birthday (don’t ask), so I believe some self-indulgence is in order.  Chocolate, anyone?
