Swaps and Interviews Galore

Remember when I said I was putting a freeze on my swap joining? Well, I take that back. This week alone I signed up for three!

How could I not when one of them is linked to my Polaroid post and hosted by my flickr friend Debbie at A Quilter's Table? Check out the SIGN UPS and get a move on because although these whip up quickly when chain pieced - especially since we're only swapping the untrimmed center with white, the mail to date is August 15th and you don't want to miss out.

As for the other two swaps that I caved on... no excuses, I just can't say no to a great idea. Modern Scrappy Bits means I get second-hand scraps which I love and create a gift for a secret partner and 10" Low Volume means that I get the variety it takes to make a scrappy quilt and share my lovely Art Gallery fabric with others - a win win.  FYI: I'm just too afraid to type the actual name of that group in my blog, clever as it is - rather safe than sorry!

Interviews Galore

The second post of Mermaid Sew's Keepin It Real interview series is up and for icing on the cake she's offering a chance at winning a PDF pattern of choice from Cluck Cluck Sew to three of her readers- how great is that?!  It was also comforting to find out that Allison isn't on facebook and doesn't tweet either - I'm not alone.

Even if you're not lucky like me and headed to Utah in October for Sewing Summit, you'll still enjoy reading the interviews on the 4 Favorites 4 Friday each week. I can't believe I'm actually going to get to meet these wonderful bloggers in person and will have my finger on the button to choose classes when the link goes live this summer.
