As I look through blogs in my reader I keep seeing these things called 'swaps'. They sounded awesome, and I really wanted to get involved. I did some research on flickr and decided to join a group!
The group is called NuBees and is for people that are new to swaps, etc. It is a month to month commitment so you can come in and out. I love having that flexibility!
Everyone in my Hive picked the colors they preferred for their projects. I picked out the fabrics and then I choose the block pattern!
I randomly found a picture of this block online. It had no instructions so I just made up some myself. =) I love pinwheels and this variation was too fun to pass up!
My Half Square Triangle math did make my head hurt a little bit, but all in all it worked. I feel like I did it without wasting too much fabric! I hope the recipients of these blocks like them!
I've received two of my five blocks and I LOVE THEM! I can't wait to show them to you after they all arrive!
Do you swap? What's your favorite type of swap/bee?
