Early in 2010 I joined an online swap. We sent out fat quarters to everyone in the swap and they added their fabrics to ours and made us a 12" block. I was loads of fun and lots of work!!! Overall it was a good experience for me as it made me push myself in trying new blocks.....and was a great learning experience in fabric selections....Here are some of the block I made.
Would I do it again....probably not......cost a small fortune in postage and I haven't done anything yet with the blocks I received......on my "to-do" list. :) Sure was fun getting the mail though!!
