Swap crunch time

This week is the deadline for two Flickr swaps I'm in - first is the Spicing Up the Kitchen Swap that I co-run with my friend Darci. We wanted a low-key and fun place to swap handmade goodies for our kitchens.

My partner wanted bright colorful fabrics for her kitchen items - this is the stack of fabric I pulled out for her. I can't say much about what I'm making because her requests were pretty specific and I don't want to spoil it!

Sutk swap fabric choices - what do you think partner?

The other swap is the Pillow Talk Swap, round 5. I've been in the 4 other rounds of this swap & I couldn't bear to say no to this 5th quickie round, I've loved all the pillows I've gotten & can always use more bright accent pillows in my house!

My partner here wanted something simple with just a pop of color - I'm taking a calculated risk here and doing mainly linen with just a few prints, hopefully I'll create something that she'll love.

I'll be sure to share the finished items when they're completed as well as the great stuff I know I'll receive back in the swaps!

Also - see in that bottom picture the little GO! logo? And my perfectly cut linen half-square triangles? I met the fun Carolyn from Accuquilt at Quilt Market last month & was so excited when they asked me if I wanted to review & giveaway their GO! Baby fabric cutter - I am loving using mine so far & can't wait to share with you what this little puppy can do. And you'll have a chance to win one! You can also sign up for their newsletter and get some free patterns.


  1. I'm excited to see what you send and receive. I did notice the homage to our sons, by the way. ;-)

  2. I love the purple print that you have for the pillow swap! Very neat!

  3. Great fabrics! I'm looking forward to what you make for your partner and what you get in return.

  4. great fabrics! looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  5. I love all the fabrics you have chosen for your kitchen swap.

  6. Your fabric stack for SUtK is fabulous! I wish I had joined in on round 2, but I was so overextended (and still am, really!). I can't wait to see your swap items; I know you'll come up with something amazing!

  7. Gorgeous fabric choices! Can't wait to see the reveal!
