Swaps and Upcoming Fun

Besides the auction quilt I have been busy working on a few swaps. My first finish is for Potholder Pass 10. This is my 3rd maybe 4th time doing PP and it's such a fun swap. I swapped grocery bags this time. My partner wanted red and black which was a fun combo to work with.

My second swap is a new one for me it's For The Love of Solids.
I can say this is an impressive group of swappers and the flickr discussions are really involved. This is my initial fabric pull and I received a lot of feedback from the group. Most of the colors came directly from my partners mosaic I've tweaked them a little and am making a sewing machine cover with them. 

I will have more info to share on online Swaps next week, including the bag I received from Penny of Sew Take a Hike, when I am part of the Craftsy Block of the Month Blog Tour! The tour has already started if you haven't see it yet there's 3 stops to catch up on and get the whole scoop. I'll tell you it's all by Amy of Stitchery Dickory Dock who is teaching Block of the Month on Craftsy and you should definitely check that out, did I mention it's free! I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with Amy at the Sewing Summit last year and am so happy to be a part of her tour!

Great bag! And I love your stack of solids...can't wait to see how the cover turns out. Oh, and your x and + blocks? Divine! Those blocks took me a long time too, but so worth the effort!

Love the fabrics you work with. I have been doing the Block of the month class with Amy and it is fun to be working with different techniques. Feeling lucky today that this might be mY lucky stop on the tour.
