So- call me crazy, but I signed up to be part of a Scrappy Christmas Block Swap on ModernJax. I made twelve scrappy Christmas-y blocks and sent two to six different people. And one extra block that goes to the lady oranizing the event, who is going to make an extra quilt to donate to charity. It is kinda cool, actually. I sent quilt blocks to Florida, Utah, Cali, South Carolina, Arizona and even Norway! In return, they send me two blocks each, so I end up with twelve blocks made by different people around the world to make a scrappy Christmas quilt. I am excited to see what I get in the mail.
I have to admit, though, a part of me wants to keep my blocks and just make a quilt out of them as they turned out really fun. But I think the swap will be awesome, too.
