I've hosted string block swaps before - but this was my first Choose You Own Colors -where also the swappers choose not only their colors but center strip width... and honestly it's confusing. It would be helpful if all center strips measured the same size or at least for those swappers doing the same color way... the B/W people... the swappers who want 30's...I know I've had a little difficulty keeping the 2" people straight from the 2.5" but that's just a minor detail.... maybe I should just pay closer attention!I asked for 1.5" finished white centers with 30's mixed and LA,LA,LOVE mine!!! If I do this swap again - either this next round or future I want the same! b/c i want to make two twin size bed covers for my girls for when they share a room in a few years.
Oh and I asked for one strip to have a 30's red background - which I love b/c it gives the blocks that little sparkle. ;) I sure hope this swap takes place again.... and ya never know... I just *may* be ready to join the next one soon... I'm about 7 sets away from being done with the current round - and I'm working as fast as I can. (see my progress from yesterday below)
I completed 3 sets today and mailed out a total of 6 people's - this sign up cut off date is my motivation!! :P We'll see...
Love from Texas!
