Block Swapping! And Hexie Plans

After being involved in the Pincushion Swap hosted by Caroline over at SewCanShe, a couple of spin-off Facebook groups evolved. I've become involved with three different swap groups! I'm so excited to be joining with them!

It seems that since going to the November meeting of the NELA guild, I've been too busy to go to another! I can't make the January meeting due to a hand applique class at Cotton Candy Quilts in a Bossier City, LA! I'm quite excited about this class as I do not know how to applique!

The three groups that I am participating in are a bit different but have the same idea. In Tatty Swap we are creating 6.5" (unfinished) blocks with a bit of input from the recipient. For example, one of the ladies I'm swapping with wishes to build a black-and-white international quilt. I was happy to oblige! I'm not too sure how many I'll end up with in this group. For January I am mailing out four (below). Only one is an international mail out. Not sure how long that will take to reach the United Kingdom though!

I'm happy to note that these four blocks got in the mail today so that counts as a finish, right?
