I've been casting about for ideas for the spring edition of the 4 Seasons Quilt Swap. My "partner" is someone whose blog I read regularly, so that only increases the pressure -- since I have no excuse for not knowing what sorts of things she likes! Anyway, I've had several plans already but I just hadn't gotten excited about any of them.
Yesterday, though, I was in the newest LQS trying to find another piece of a particular fabric to finish the setting triangles on a top (which none of the local shops have any more, so I ordered it from Tennessee Quilts). This shop is mostly catering to dressmakers -- tons of notions and trims and some lovely dress fabric -- but they also have a nice little selection of quilting cottons, including a lot of Alexander Henry designs. And I found this -- it's called "Mini Monroe", and it screamed "spring" to me!
I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet, but at least I have a starting point!
This is my latest finish -- it's a 4-patch stack& whack that I blogged about sometime last year. Finally finished the quilting and binding. My local guild is participating in a project to send quilts to two groups in Africa, and this will go to them. One group is for women in Congo who are victims of violent rape; the other is for children with HIV and other diseases in Uganda.
