    Here is the quilt I made with my swap squares. I embroidered snowmen, snowflakes and holly on it. Took me a while to figure out what to do. Sandwiched it today. It will have a blue blender binding. It's my first swap, it was a bit of work, but so fun to get all the wonderful squares back!

    Hi Lori, swap squres are from a swap I joined on this board. You submit 12 squres and you get 11 different ones back. It was really a lot of fun. I look forward to doing another one.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
