More swapping stuff

Looking back, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I signed up for six swaps that are all mailing in a few month's window. Crazyhead. I recently mailed one and have two others just about wrapped up, so now I'm getting started on the next three due in August.

Despite promising a break from pincushions, I just couldn't resist another for my Cotton + Steel swap partner using the same fabulous silver fabric featured in the mini. I used a bit of selvage for a little tag. Pretty ingenious, huh?

Then I got started on my Thimble Blossoms swap. My partner's favourite Thimble Blossoms pattern is the mini swoon, and her favourite colour navy blue. I made that the focal fabric for the four blocks, and then brightened the navy with four different prints.

I quite like the combinations sparked by her favourite colour. She's actually my second partner, my first having dropped out of the swap quite early, although after I specifically bought fabric to suit her tastes which are definitely not mine. But don't get me started!
