Spent the morning cutting 5” charm squares for an online swap.
In exchange for a little of my time and a yard and a half of fabric, I’ll receive 72 5” charm squares in a variety of Alison Glass fabrics!
I’m not much of a designer follower. Mostly when I purchase quilt fabric, I buy whatever strikes my fancy. Typically, I see a beautiful design or a wonderful color in a fabric and I just get the urge to add it to my stash. Occasionally though, I notice the designer as well as the wonderful fabric. Alison Glass is one of those designers I notice and look for because her fabrics are so wonderful—especially her Sun Prints.
In fact, even though I’m pretty sure I didn’t even know who she was at the time, I even featured several Alison Glass fabrics in Elephants on Parade, a quilt pattern from my book, “Idiot’s Guides: Quilting.” They are simply that compelling.
If you’ve never done a swap, I recommend them! Make sure however that the hostess knows what she’s doing so you get high-quality charms in return.
I participated in another swap awhile back, and received lots of cute novelties. Again, another well executed swap.
I don’t have a particular plan right now for the Alison Glass charms, except petting them! <grin>
