I borrowed a sewing machine from my sis in law for a couple of days to get my swap blocks done! YaY for my sis in law! Here is a sneak peek for Penny, I hope she loves the block!
It'll probably give it away but when I read Penny's preferance I thought about my Maternal Grandparents. My Maternal Gram is the one who taught me to sew and make quilts. This one time I weathered a particularly bad wind storm with them out on their farm and when it was over Gramps went out to check on things and about 5 minutes later he came back in and said "Ma! The ol' barns all out of whack and off kilter!" The block I made I'm calling "Off Kilter Barn". And since she said she likes "old timey" I actually included a couple of vintage scraps straight from my Grams cedar chest which I inherited.
I hope she loves it, and now I get to go open the one she sent me since I finally got her block done! YaY!!
