Many, many thanks to Madam Samm, our fearless leader who shares her love by organizing these amazing sharing opportunities. Thanks also to Robert Kauffman, Amanda Murphy and Aurafil who have sponsored us this time around. But biggest kudos go to Carol, who has been our tireless cheerleader for this hop. She is great at communication, is filled with patience and and has been truly understanding and flexible.
I knew from the start that I wanted to make Camille's Mini Swoon. Whenever I see a swoon quilt, it always frustrates me that some of the blocks pop with the star design and other with the surround. I can sort of see the pattern, but I had the thought that if I took it down to two colors, it would show up loud and clear. (And I think it did!)
I love the red/aqua combo. Seeing it used in the different parts of the block helps me to see different possibilities. One looks like a sparkly star, the other looks more like a flower to me.
The pics are awful because its been foggy here the last couple of days. I finished it well enough ahead of time, but Mother Nature decided this wasn't important enough to cooperate for :(
Now, that we've spent some time together, check out these other amazing projects today:
A Reformed Heath'n (that's me!)
