Lovely examples,Gaijin. Your name is the first on to float into the jar!. The Card Trick Table Runner is a terrific use of that block put on point.

Here is what I am considering as my next big challenge. https://arbeedesigns.com/products/trinity-celtic-knot I discovered the pattern by conversing with a 2.5" user from Australia. Yes, I did suggest she join the Quilting Board and lurk with us for ideas.

I googled Trinity Celtic Knot and found many color variations on Pinterest that I like better than the RWB in the pattern. Honestly before I start this one, I need to get....6 UF0/WIPs finished. I keep making tops in an effort to whittle down my stash.
That is a gorgeous quilt, too! I am ok on colors. I just need time to cut up my stash and start sewing :-)

You are right! so very similar! Thank you for the picture of your baby quilt. Just keep on inspiring me! Thank you for the link to the quilt along for the swoon, WMUteach! I can see you both are candy enablers. Looks like I"m addicted now.

Gaijin, these are gorgeous! Thank you for the inspiration!

I posted this Christmas Wall Hanging on last years thread but wanted to share it with the new swappers. This took me a day to make and I love it! I want to make another one in more everyday colors.

Today I start work on a scrappy Disney quilt for a wedding I am going to in October. They are going to Disney World for their honeymoon and their gift registry is filled with Disney items. Made the quilt idea a no-brainer! I have a large variety of Disney fabric and last week I bought fabric in the newer movies. The squares are cut 6.5" and I will use 61 different Disney fabrics in a checkerboard pattern with a neutral. I'm looking forward to some easy piecing. Haven't decided if the backing will be one fabric or a panel.

I was working on this lap size top a few months ago, before my life seemed to run away on me! I haven't sewn in weeks now. We found out a couple of weeks ago that we are expecting Baby #5 in January, 2023! My heart is full of excitement and I already can't wait to see this little one, and our girls are thrilled! But, as always, my energy levels are drained with the first trimester morning sickness. This 95+ weather isn't helping me either, lol!

My veggie garden is exploding faster than I can can it and freeze it. I have harvested over 50 lbs of zucchini so far, and the season is yet young! Hubby had his first taste of snap freezing and canning on Saturday. It was wonderful to have a second pair of hands to help me.

​​​​​​I love the Trinity Celtic Knot pattern shared! I'll need to save that on my bucket list.

Beautiful quilts shared here! Please keep sharing them!

Congratulations NZquilter on the upcoming baby! Wow that is awesome! I remember the first trimester was not by much fun, hopefully you will be past it soon.

Congratulations NZ! What a blessing to have a family of little people snuggling around you.

Love the Red and Green quilt, IrishMom. A good use of our side swap squares last year? Finished size? Pattern source?

I ordered the Trinity Celtic Knot pattern and it arrive as a PDF in just a few minutes. I have not yet read through it with care but perhaps later tonight. I haven't chosen a color scheme either. All I know is that it will not be R/W/B. I also ordered a Mariner's Compass pattern from the same site. So many beautiful opportunities.

NZ - Congratulations!! I love that everyone in the family is excited, too! I love the yellow based candy quilt you posted. Is that for the new baby or do you have someone else in mind?
