Spoiler Alert! Photos of swap items ahead!
Here is a bird I'm piecing together with lots of ripping out stitches and trying again! It's fun to see it taking shape.
Next, I played with selvages; the side edges of fabric where the design data and color test are printed. I sent these off to Linda S, my sewing buddy!
My sister, Pamela, just moved into a new house, so I made these as a housewarming gift. The fabrics are two prints she sent me to use in Grace's quilt, and she told me they remind her of the doodles she draws. I know she'll like them!
And since I had some triangles left from making the flying geese in this Dutchman's Puzzle, I made them into little pinwheels and embellished a couple dishtowels.
Who doesn't need more dishtowels?
Here are a couple I whipped up for Laura A's birthday:
And here are the front and back of what I'm making for the swap. What do you think? Should I go with these, or keep trying?
