Swaps and a giveaway

And now to show you some swaps I have been working on.  First is a mini quilt I have been working on for the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild.  We have a secret partner who we stalk and then create a small doll size quilt for.

My partner had no real preferences.  Just bright colors.  The backing is a bright, colorful, and light Kafe Fasset print. The little houses were inspired by kaitcetera little houses quilt.  I am trying to decide whether to machine quilt or to hand quilt with pearl cottons.  What do you think? 

I received this wonderful mug rug in the Scrappy Mug Rug haiku swap on flickr from snailexpress.  We had to make a mug rug and write a haiku.  I love she used my favorite Tula Pink fabrics.  My Pringce Chaming is hanging in my studio.  She also made a cute little coin purse.  Awesome!

Here are three of the blocks I have received from my month August for Bee Together.  I cut up my DS Quilts Fairground and Picnic(US prints).

I asked everyone to make a wonky star.  I included three large squares of the DS Quilts and of some Kona Snow.  I told them to use some of all of the fabrics but the white did not have to be the background.  I also included a mosaic of some wonky stars. 

I cant wait to receive the rest!
