After way too much procrastination, I finally finished my first block for my new friend Stephanie and our Supernova Friendship Block Swap. While there were a few bumps and twists and mutterings of not very nice words, I’m actually pretty pleased with how it turned out.
I only gave Steph a few sneak peaks via my Instagram page, starting with this:
But here’s the full view: (we’re using Splendor 1920 by Bari J, along with items from our own stash. The background is Art Gallery solids in ivory.)
Thanks to reading Jeni Baker’s blog, I learned that it’s important to spoil your swap partner a little, so I made Steph a little table runner out of leftovers from my plus sign quilt.
One of these days I really have to finish that thing …
Here’s the block that Stephanie sent me — isn’t it wonderful?
In addition to her list of 25 things I didn’t know about her, Steph also sent me these really cute notepads with owls on them:
I’ll reveal some of her 25 things soon (with her permission, of course), but I want to get to the thing I know at least a few of you are waiting for — who won the free Apps pattern?
Jessica Daniele, it’s you! I’ll send you your pdf pattern in just a bit. I hope you’ll send me a photo of your finished Apps quilt.
Thanks again to all of you for entering and for those of you who’ve joined Stephanie and I on our block swap.
