The craze is on again! / Progress on BD quilt

Do you know what I'm talking about?! :)

The sign up for the July swap is closed (of course - we are already into August). If you have missed the previous swaps, don't despair, there will be another swap in October.

Over the last week I have been busy organizing and packing all the squares. Last week I sent out
- 12 matching sets of 100 2.5 inch squares
- 4 newbie gifts - 50 2.5 inch squares
- 3 newbie gifts - 50 2 inch squares

Today I have sent out
- 11 matching sets of 100 2 inch squares

The squares are now flying out of Mauritius, to the US, Canada, Australia, Sweden and Croatia. Now I can sit down patiently and wait for squares flying in to Mauritius! :)

I don't have much to show and tell, because I'm still hooked up on Johnny's BD quilt.
I'm happy to say though, that all the quilting is done - just a few thread ends to be taken care of. I hope to start working on the binding in a couple of days.
Here it is - sneak-peak.... I've used flannel (made in India) for the backing. It doesn't match very well the top, but since it is a scrap quilt and it's going to be a bedspread, does it really matter?! :) To make this quilt I have used all fabrics from my stash, except only one fabric that I just had to buy! :)

Yesterday I made a fruit cake - check out the recipe here.

I love your the back of your BD-quilt! I agree, if the front is scrappy...., does it matter??
Enjoy the swaps and challenge.... My challenge is to finally get some projects done.......
Enjoy! Love, Ria.

Hei!! Takk for hyggelig kommentar!! Den swappen i oktober skulle jeg gjerne vært med på!! Kanskje du kan fortelle meg hvor jeg bør følge med? Hos deg? Her tenkt jeg skulle sy en slik quilt og jeg har mye smått på lager. Mye kutting, men det er det vært!! Så du liker ikke kantareller?:-). Det er ikke så lett å finne, derfor blir det ekstra gøy. Det er bare den ene suppen jeg plukker. Tar ingen sjanser på giftig sopp. Ha en fin dag, idag skinner solen i Oslo!! AnneKari :-)
