TO SWAP OR NOT TO SWAP
I'M A LITTLE BIT WONKY
Do you participate in many of the various quilting type "swaps" available in our virtual Blogworld?
Up till now, if something wasn't sponsored by the blog, Sew We Quilt and Madame Samm I didn't much bother. Although, I did participate in 2 apron swaps on Flirty Apron Swap. It was fun and I received much better than I gave. And THERE in lies the rub...I don't trust my sewing skills to measure up with most of you in the Quilt/Sewing World. I have this bad dream of someone receiving a package from me and giving a big ol Southern,
"Good Lord have mercy, what in the world is this? That poor little thing thinks she can sew. I hate to hurt her feelings but I'll never use this. It's SO BAD, I won't even be able to REGIFT it."
SEW, with all these feelings whirling around in my head, what did I do??? Yep, you guessed it....I signed on with Jane at Jane's Fabrics and her WONKY HOUSE SWAP/SIGNATURE BLOCKS SWAP.
I found these examples in blogland but can't "member"(as Sidekick Scott says) where

Wonky Houses in progress
No you didn't?? Afraid so....Some poor soul out there will have to receive two of my blocks. My reasoning for participating was this: Each of us swappers gets 12 different Wonky House blocks and 12 different Signature Blocks from totally different quilters so ONE TRULY WONKY per quilt does not a bad quilt make. Right?! Please humor me and tell me I've not used up ALL my common sense!
I found some examples of signature blocks as well. These look easy peasy...no problemo.
I'm actually excited about participating because this Wonky House swap appeals to my quirky sense of humor. Here is the link so you can join in IF there's room. Jane, (the Jane that can REALLY SEW and has her own ETSY Store) is only excepting 60 wonky blockers (my term, not her's)
Would you like to get your WONKY on and join us? If so, just WONKY on over to
P.S. Say a little prayer for those receiving my blocks!! LOL
