I recently joined my first swap. It's from Quilting Gallery and is an embroidery swap. Here's what mine looks like so far.
The dark outer border makes it look too dark, I think. I was trying to go for something lighter and springy, so I will probably change something here before I'm done. Luckily, I've got it mostly done well ahead of the May 25 deadline!
Also got a VERY easy DJ block done. Well, I just HAD to get SOMETHING done on this project. It's been positively ignored for a couple months. And to think at the beginning of the year I had grand plans to be done by June! I'll have to rethink my schedule for that. Still want to have it done and to the quilter by the end of the year. Anyhoo, here is the block:
I think it is J4, it has 7 pieces and was paper and regular pieced. Voila!
Here are 2 that are prepped for applique, but not yet done.
