Well, after meticulously cutting out HSTs and even marking the 1/4" on all sides, I tried sewing them together to make a doll quilt for the next swap. What a mess! I am hopeless. So ... I threw them out.
I pulled out part of my huge stash of fabric samples and selected some brocades and an really pretty embroidered satiny swatch and here's what I made. A practice run ... and I don't know what happened to the colors in the photo. The fabric has a gorgeous bronze sheen to it that isn't coming out and the border is a blue and bronze brocade.
