I did my best to group together "like requests," so I didn't have to switch from one piecing mode to another.
I started with Terry's block, who provided some Kaffe and Kona White and asked for frame in frame style blocks.
From there, I moved on to John, who asked for multiple frames within a larger 15" block.
After that came lunch and a brief foray into the world of paper-piecing. After a few failed practice blocks, I eventually decided that 24 hours before a deadline is not the ideal time to try new things for other people's projects, unless they've specifically requested a new-to-me technique. Can I get a witness?
Next came Sara, who asked for a block with movement and suggested flying geese as a possibility. I seized her suggestion with a vengeance, since I can make flying geese like no one's business.
After that, I worked with Kate's fabric, who also suggested geese and even had a bird in one of her fabrics, so I decided to fussy cut around that.
Then came Colleen's block, which needed to have a wonky star in there somewhere, without making just a plain ol' wonky star. After making these itty bitty square in square for both Colleen's and John's blocks, I think I'm hooked. I'm plotting ways to incorporate them in a charm pack quilt.
For my final block of the night, I made a wonky quarter log cabin block for Maret, using John's tutorial as a basis for the construction.
At that point, I called it a night for sewing, and went downstairs for dinner and a movie, so that the Husbatron would remember what I looked like, in all my pajama-wearing, unshowered glory. That's right. I wore my PJs all day on Saturday. What of it?
Then on Sunday, I finished the final block for Amanda, who requested a chicken block. After the previous day's failed paper piecing attempts, I was thrilled to find a patchwork pattern for a chicken.
And with that, I was done! My other blocks for this swap are described here.
