I'm going to make the deadline, really, I am. I've never done a little quilt swap like this before but I have to say, it's been a great experience for me. I knew exactly what I was going to make as soon as I got the name of my recipient. Lori at Humble Quilts is the organizer of this project, and the rules guidelines were very simple.
I started making one for me at the same time, same pattern and colors but a variation of prints. Mine is still sitting amongst a pile of choices, while hers is layered, basted and is being hand quilted. I have about 3" around the outside and the border to quilt and I'm confident it will be in the mail by the deadline.
Have you done a swap before? Were you pleased with what you got in return? For me, that's not the point, it's doing something special for a fellow blogger/quilter, even though we get one in return.
