PTS 10 – complete!

PTS 10 – complete!

I finally finished my Pillow Talk Swap 10 cushion this week, but have spent a few days waiting for the right size form to arrive ito photograph it. My partner on this swap has been VERY quiet, I haven’t even seen what she’s working on for her partner, so I have struggled a bit making something that’s not so much to my tatste (not a massive fan of grey…or pink) with no real guidance.

As always the standard of this swap has been stupidly high and some days I’ve come away from looking at the Flickr pool feeling quite deflated and wanting to scrap my cushion and start again. Anyhow, I have learned a lot (wish I’d added binding/piping for one!) and I’m itching for the next swap to begin to that I can move forward, try new things and do it better next time.

So will you all do me a favour and let me know if you see any swaps recruiting? Particularly pillow/cushion ones or mini quilts?  I try to keep an eye on the Flickr groups, but there is often such a small window of opportunity, it’s easy to miss the sign-ups…

Loving what you made. It can be soooo hard making for a quiet partner!

I have found two international swaps (mug rugs and a small Spring Quilt swap) that were not too onerous but a lot of fun. I sent my mug rugs to Germany and received from Denmark and sent my Spring Quilt to Turkey and received from the US. Entry costs were not high. The site I watch is http://quiltinggallery.com/quilting-bloggers/
