Swapping

Kokka fabric
This fun Japanese print by Kokka is for a swap I'm participating in...Gen X Quilter's Japanese Imports Swap 2 on Flickr. This is my second round and I had so much fun participating the first time that I thought a I'd have another go at it. We each choose a yard of Japanese novelty fabric and cut it into 5" squares. We then send it off and get back 2 charms of each person's fabric.

It was so much fun to get a variety of prints to play with. I haven't decided what to do with them yet but AnneMarie is hosting a quilt along soon that I may consider. And of course Carla has had me thinking about I Spy quilts for awhile now. I'm sure I'll think of something!

I found this at Sarah's in Lawrence. I love the little beagle in this print. I had a very sweet beagle and it makes me thing of my dad who loved beagles, too.

Have you participated in many swaps? I've done a few through KCMQG and a hoop swap and they're so much fun. I've done a pretty good job of not getting carried away with them so far but I could see how easy it would be to sign up for a bunch.
