The LAMQG held a swap last night that was really fun. Everyone brought in a sandwich bag of scraps and we swapped them at our September meeting. We were allowed to add one new fabric to the scraps and could make whatever we wanted.
I got Andrew‘s scraps and made him a pillow! I really took advantage of being able to add one fabric and added the blue – a Carolina Chambray half yard I’d picked up.
The quilting is fun and easy. I think I’ll be exploring free motion with straight lines a lot more. I don’t deal with the pulling issue my machine gives me with long straight lines with my walking foot, but I get the same modern feel. Win win!
We swapped back our finished projects at last night’s guild meeting, which was our 1 year anniversary! We had a really fun party style meeting. Can you all believe that the Guild has only been around for 1 year?? It’s amazing how much we’ve grown in that time. I’ll blog all about the meeting soon!
