23 Jan The Year of the Swap
There are so many great ways to mix quilting and community out there these days.

In 2010, I joined my first two virtual quilting bees. They were very different; one fairly traditional and one modern and improv. My Warm Winter Night quilt was the result of The Bee’s Knees VQB and I just love the way it turned out. Unfortunately, my Mid Mod Bee quilt is still in blocks. I really do want to get this put together as my bee buddies made amazing blocks for me.

In 2012, I have signed up for three swaps. My participation in the Pillow Talk Swap has not yet been confirmed, but I am in on the Valentine swap from GenerationQ magazine and the For the Love of Solids Swap on Flickr. I’ve been having a lot of fun reading (and answering) all the questions from members of the FTLOS group. There are so many fun decisions ahead. Swappers in the FTLOS group post mosaics and answer a questionnaire as to the things they like. Now I get to “stalk” my partner and see how she answers the various questions so I can try to make something she will love.
Are you trying anything new that mixes quilting and community this year?
