Since I still consider myself a relative newbie to sewing I hadn't tried out a swap of any kind yet. That is until this last month. I joined two swaps in February: one hosted by Darci over at Stitches and Scissors where we swapped fat quarters that made us feel like spring, and the other was hosted by Sew Mama Sew for their Fat Quarter month where we were put into groups with four others and swapped some more FQ's. I had the hardest time figuring out which fabric to send since I didn't want to send anything I wouldn't love to get but didn't want to part with so much of my stash. After about 2 weeks of agonizing over my choices I finally decided on a nice selection to send out. It includes some vintage Amy Butler, Cake Rock Beach and a few other gems I picked up in Toronto over Christmas. I can only hope that the ladies that receive them are as excited about them as I am. I already received one of my fat quarters and it's a great swatch of Alexander Henry, so that was very exciting! I can't wait to see what else I'll get!
