Summer is almost over butt it was such fun
participating in the Summer Sun Swap on Instagram.
My secret partner was @sboots812 Suse Boots
I searched my stash to find her favorites colors
Chose this paper pieced pattern
If you like it you can buy it here on Craftsy
Found a cute Chevron Print in my stash for the backing.
Enough for Binding and Corner Tabs
It was a challenge to paper piece as some of the pieces
were sew TINY! The block was small as well
so I added the border to meet the swap size requirements.
The "one" extra needed to be something
that represented me or where I live
and non-sewing related.
I added some note papers from Lotta Jansdotter,
cause I love her fabric
AND a bookmark...come on...
I could never do just one extra!
Of course, I made the card too!
And my maker was Susie Boots~and this is what I received.
An adorable turtle(s) mini with a small zipper pouch
and some Maple Syrup from New Hampshire!
Thanks to @sparklestash who was the swap mama
and kept this swap organized and moving well!
I hope you have had a great summer...
if you took a vacation
...tell me where you went!
