I've become very interested in sewing lately. I think my knitting has hit a bit of a rut, and sewing is almost instant gratification.
I'm starting a half-square triangle quilt. (Let's see if I can find a CC image for one of these, ah, here we go:)

And mine will have zig-zags like that and oh so much more.
With that in mind, I joined Very Berry Handmade's scrap swap, since I love having as many different fabrics as possible in quilt.
Here is what I sent to H.J. of no-known-blog, a scrap bundle which I called "stormy seas":
And here is what I received from Sew Quine Stitches:
A Fantastic selection of prints & solids, plus an assortment of riches in the form of zips, ribbons, and buttons. Awesome, thanks swap buddy!! :D
I have already cut into some of the scraps to start on my charm square-sized pieces for the HSTs.
I "only" need 172 (!) coloured squares, and the same again of white. I just wish I didn't have a compulsion for every square to be a different fabric/pattern. Yikes.
That being said, I'm collecting small pieces of quilting fabric, 5"x5" or bigger. Got any to share, especially in the above palette? :)
