Hst's...anyone interested in a possible hst swap?

I spent a few hours today cutting out fabric for 2 quilts today. Well, it is the same quilt, I am just back to making 2 of them at the same time. This one is a treat for myself. Ever since I got the book, "Friendship Triangles" by Edyta Sitar, I have wanted to make this for myself. It is actually a wallhanging. It is called Tree of Life. Here is a pic that I copied off of The Fat Quarter shop that had the pic of the wallhanging on it:



Isn't it just wonderful? I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. The fact that there are 8 trees on it makes me love it even more as there are 8 members of my family. I think I will put each persons name on a tree. I love all the patterns in this book and will probably cut out fabric for at least one more tonight.

I am definitely on a HUGE hst binge now so was wondering...is there any interest in doing an hst swap? We could all make a set amount..say 10 per participant, mail them to me and then I could divy them up to everyone. Nice chance to get some new stuff in our hst choices. Just a thought..let me know what you think!!

  1. If there is other interest, I would definitely be interested!! To clarify, would it be 10 per person entered from everyone? Or 1 person would send just 10?

  2. That is a pretty quilt (I got to see it in person when Edyta lectured for our guild earlier this year). I am still working on the quilt from my last swap, so I will pass on the HSTs, but hope you get good participation!

  3. Ooh... a hst swap. What size and any color restrictions? I have been sewing spare triangles together recently cause I want to make a tree of life quilt myself. But, I haven't decided on a pattern yet. Keep me posted on the swap concept. B.

  4. Love the quilt! Maybe on the swap- a lot depends on the timetable... I may have to wait on a future swap-portunity.
