A Halloween Swap....
how neat is that? Susan at Blackberry Creek Home Arts is hosting a Halloween Trick or Treat Swap. Stop by her blog and check it out. She makes the greatest ATC's and just posted new ones for Halloween. She is one talented lady. I signed up for the swap--can't wait to get started on that. One more thing to add to my list of To-Do's. Just what I needed, right?
Katie says we have to make Gudrun's pattern that's in the Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine, September/October issue,
for sure as one of our projects for Halloween. And since I just happen to have that copy, I'm letting her have her way.
Block Central is having a “Sweet 16 Sixteens Snowpeople Swap” on their forum. It's a no-sew swap. Swappers need to commit to sending at least 16 Sweet Sixteens (A "Sweet Sixteen" is a 9” by 11” cut of fabric.) to arrive no later than October 15th. The theme for this swap is “Let It Snow!”
The background colors of each fabric should be blue and white with scenes of Snowpeople and Snowflakes-but not Christmas. I have to check my stash before I commit to this swap, but it sounds like a great way to increase my snowmen stash. Maywood Studios have a whole line of free Sweet Sixteen patterns on their website. Go here and check them out.
