Ugh. Whatever cold has been sweeping the Northeast crash landed at my place for the last few weeks. Being sick really sucks all the energy right out of you. But, hopefully, I’m back at full steam for good now. I have quilts to make! (And a turkey to cook!)
Even in the depths of sickness, I managed a little sewing, and hopefully I’ll get pictures of it all before too long. But for now, here’s one of the projects I worked on. (And I’ll apologize now for the indoor iphone photos)
A drawing Jo did of our quilt – Isn’t it fantastic!?!
Way, way, way back in May, Jo from Riddle and Whimsy asked me to participate in the Supernova Friendship Swap. We quickly realized three things: We both have nearly exactly the same taste in fabrics, we needed to do 6 blocks each for a larger quilt, and we HAD to do this as a rainbow. Soon after we realized that it would be far more economical to send each other one package (she’s in Australia, I’m in New England), rather than 6 individual packages.

Then other deadlines snuck in, and I kept putting off making these blocks….so I ended up making all 6 for Jo in about 2-3 weeks, all at once, with the deadline looming. And to add guilt, Jo finished and sent hers early….
Indigo through Pink
Orange through Aqua
So what this all worked out to was I made one half of a quilt, and Jo made one half of a quilt. And being sick, I forgot to take a picture of my half of the quilt, just the individual blocks…. Silly germs.
Citron through Indigo
Hopefully, the post will deliver the half of quilt to Jo soon…I’m sitting on pins and needles waiting to see it all sewn together.
Red through yellow
Now of course, I still have to sew the exact same 6 blocks for me so I can have an awesomely rainbow quilt.
Aqua through Orchid
If you want to see more in process pictures and read more about our quilts, here’s the links to Jo’s blog posts. She was the organized one of our pair, starting her blocks early, posting about it….
