Everything's a quilt

Though I'm not certain of meeting my first quarter FinishALong goals, I've started a new project. I was invited to join a swap group and I was too excited to say no. It's my first swap. I think - bees are different than swaps, right? Anyhow, it's run like Secret Santa and my partner doesn't know who I am and I don't know who is making me something, which adds some pressure and some fun. We're to make each other a finished quilt that is somewhere between 12x12 or 24x24 inches. I've started sketching and pulling fabrics. And, let's be honest, buying fabrics 'cause who doesn't love another excuse to fabric shop. I noticed my dishes in the dish strainer this morning and realized that they have elements that could work well in a mini quilt...

Don't you just love the ideas part of making a quilt?! I love pulling out my notebook and finding a clean page to start a new project. I've already filled three pages... :-).

    I think I'm in the same swap, also my first. Last night I was making sketches & filling e-carts too.
