The Soul Crushing Table Runner is done. So sad. This project really grew on me, thanks, especially to all of your help, guidance and input along the way. In March the LAMQG announced that they were hosting a guild swap similar to the UHGS on Flickr. I thought it could be fun to actually hand over the booty and see a reaction in person so I signed up. I also thought that participating would be a great way to get more involved in the guild and start to meet more people.
I was paired up with Missy. She said that she would love a table runner. She likes bright colors and linen. Also among her favorite designers are AHA and Amy Butler. I stopped by Sew Modern to get some fabric inspiration and was immediately drawn to the Soul Blossoms line. It seemed to fit her color and fabric likes. Then I got it home and started to pull out my coveted Innocent Crush stash. When the line was first introduced I bought up a bunch and have been waiting for just the right moment to dive into it. This project seemed like the right moment.
Along the way I've shared with all of you some of my concerns with my fabric choices. I thought that the two lines went together hand in hand but I was nervous that they would be appropriate for Missy. The more I worked on this project, the more I fell in love with it and last night I gifted it to Missy.
I've never participated in an "in-person" swap and I will not lie, I was very nervous. Thankfully, Missy seems to be pleased with the end result which makes me very, very happy. I'm really glad that I decided to participate in this swap. Hopefully I've made steps forward to making some new friends in the guild. I'm already looking forward to my next meeting.
I'm linking this project up with Fabric Tuesday over at Quilt Story. And stay tuned tomorrow because I'm going to be hosting a very special giveaway.
