11  Re: Quilt Block Swap (Sign-ups CLOSED, Sendouts April 12) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by klum78 on: March 04, 2010 11:55:53 PM
I'd love to see pics too!

Since I changed things around again and thoroughly confused my partners, I worked up my block tonight as an example.
Here are the individual 6.5 inch blocks:





 and then what it would look like if sewed them together for the 12.5 inch block:


This was actually my first time paper piecing and doing this block.  It took me about 45 min to sew these up, and that includes digging through my scrap bins.  I think they turned out nice for my first try.  Also,  the paper can be fiddly to remove.  I used my smallest stitch length and it wasn't too bad.  If you wanted to leave it on, I am more than willing to remove it on my end to save you the hassle.  Smiley

Alright here are the mushrooms!  I know there are six, I made extra.  My daughter wants which ever one is left over.  




(for some reason 5 looks deformed in the picture, but it's not, I promise!)

I sent out my PMs also   If you are green, I will probably be shipping out tomorrow.  So if you reply back soon, I will add it to the pile to be shipped.  Smiley

Here is a picture of my tote that I am offering:




They are unlined but have french seams for strength.  I didn't line them so that they can fold up really small and you can keep them in your glove box or purse.  They are very sturdy.  My daughter uses one for her library books, I think we've packed over 10 books in there before. 

FYI: I modified the Morsbag pattern to make the bags and the pin cushions are made from the pattern by Lila Tueller.

The scrub and bowls look great!

I added to my offering.  I am still doing the totes, which I will post a pic of very soon (they look very similar to sajona's but in different fabric. Smiley )  Plus I am now offering mushroom pincushions.  There are so many things this round that I would love to have, I had to up my offering.  Smiley  Here is an example:


They will probably this shape and the flatter topped shaped mushroom.  I will post a pic once I am finished with them all.

Okay for an option for my other 5 things, would anyone be interested in a sleep mask?  Like these:



I could do them and a little zippered pouch to put them in.  Yes?  No?

Or recycled crayons?  they might make good stocking stuffers.  Like the ones here:

I would include more than one though. Smiley
