Over the last couple of weeks I have become addicted to stripping like many others in blogland at the moment. It started when I joined in with the No Strings Attached Challenge hosted by Loft Creations. I have almost finished my first quilt but got distracted when a special person who is getting married this year fell in love with it. I decided to start one for her as the perfect wedding pressie. I worked out I would need over 160 squares and after raiding my own large stash I wanted a bit more variety so put out a call for help on the SSC - Did anyone fancy doing a 'strip swap'??
All of the lovely ladies below came up trumps to help me and little strip parcels were exchanged.
I added a few red strips along the way, but here are the special squares with the swapped strips
these 4 below are from Boysmum3, but somehow they lost the label when I took the photos!
I have labeled the squares on the back at the moment and need to think of a way to ensure the recipient knows who they are from
I had lots of extra strips so mixed them up with my own for the other blocks
I love the way that all the fabric is different but somehow it all works together.
So a big thank you to everyone on the SSC for sending the strips, I hope you have as much fun with your little swap parcels as I did with mine!
If anyone in blogland wants to join in with the strip swap just leave me a comment below.
