I Spy swap sign up

Call me crazy...I love I Spy quilts and swaps!

It's been a while since I participated/ran an I Spy swap.
I started collecting just before my son was born (4 yrs ago). I probably have 1,000+ blocks waiting to become something. I have the top to a "Once upon a time" quilt that just needs to be sandwiched and quilted. Not a huge one either....put it on my list of things to do!!

I'll be posting a form to sign up.
I'm going to limit this one to one group (unless lots of people are on a waiting list) so the 1st 19 People to comment and fill out the form get a space.
Pass the word!
With a new little girl entering the world, MQX wasn't in the card (3 hr drive each way)
So my GF and I went to the Sew Expo in Worchester, MA instead.
Here are some of the quilts we saw:

So its been a a year.

We added a new member to our family recently.
Kennedy Rose was born March 14th.
Hard to believe she's already 6 wks.

I've gotten a little sewing done.
I've joined a Modern Quilting Bee and need to pull fabric choices for their blocks.
Hoping she'll let me do more sewing as she gets older.

I took a class with Angela Walters.
Lots of info and great teacher
Here are a few samples from class

Just attended MQX in Manchester, NH

What an many talented artists.

My mom tells me to remember that people love what I do and appreciate it.

If it was my job to quilt all day every day, perhaps my work would look different.

I love what I do.

I gained lots of ideas, though I think the classes are designed for long-arm quilters rather than domestic.

Here are some picts to enjoy



Check out the striped fabric that makes the center of the block

 Would you really want to do all this piecing?
