Swap Til You Drop Two Color Quilt

I can finally post pictures of my swap quilt for Swap Til You Drop. The theme for November was a two color quilt. I have to admit, I cheated a little. I added a strip of red to the back. Naughty, girl!! The black and white just cried out for red to me!! So I bent the rules just a bit!! That's what rules are for ... right??




This was my first quilt swap ever ... and I have to admit, I was a little nervous. Some of the people in the group do such beautiful work, I wasn't sure mine would measure up. Then, I thought, practice makes perfect, and the only way I'm going to get any better is to keep practicing. My partner seemed to like it, so I guess I did okay!!

Oh I love it. I'm collecting ideas for my black and white quilt. I'll have to come back and take another look when I get to fabric shopping.
