Over the past few months I've been taking part in a Friendship Quilt exchange organised by the lovely Fiona of Staring at the Sea. I make a quilt square, one a month, and post it off to the next name on the list. Yesterday I parcelled up a square for my friend Deb and I chose a card from my collection to put in with it, and I took it to the Post Office. I found one of my story cards to send, because Deb can tell a great story; but, when I got home I realised that maybe some quilt themed cards might be good to have in store for the months ahead. So I made this one:
and this one:
I stitched overlapping, slightly different sized squares onto my cards because for me the best thing about this swap is that we are all sewing different fabrics with different skill levels and all having fun with the results. I've never done any patchwork before, but I'd only made the first couple of blocks before I realised why many quilters become so passionate about their hobby.
I guess that thought is what led me to make this page for Scrap365
How good it is when one creative activity leads to another.
