Do you know what I'm talking about?! :)
You are right; The Postage Quilt 2012 Charm Swap and Challenge, hosted by Mary at The Curious Quilter.
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.
