1. Kona cottons sew like butter.
2. Solid fabrics are nice to put in quilts after all.
3. Thinking outside the box is challenging and fun. Even when the quilt will not match my country style house. :bluewink: (DD loves the style tho! It's going on her bedroom wall.)
4. Circles are much more difficult to applique than odd shapes. :nervous:
5. This would make a great style quilt for a baby because of the bright colors and graphic shapes. (I'm really thinking outside my usual box on this one. :bg: )

I'm sure I will learn more as I finish up my blocks.
Great block swap idea Patty!

It has been interesting to see how just solids work together
Taking a picture as an inspiration is way out there but I love it
Not knowing how other people would interprete the design is nerve wracking
Sewing circles is a pig
This is my first swap so I am all of a twitter
I don't know what I will do with the blocks /top yet either
Not knowing if your sewing is up to standard leaves you a little nervous. I work on a 'good enough' and 'who's going to look that close' pricinpal and some of the others in the swap are sewing divas!
love and kisses, Jan
