Although most of my time this holiday week has been spent hanging around doing very little, I did finally take some time one day to make up a few blocks, using strips from my strip bag (and a few from the scrap basket). I've just gone with a generic light/dark block, rather than any colour theme (though there's a lot of navy and black in there). They'll do, I'm sure. There are 12 blocks (12" blocks) so it will make a small quilt top, which is all I need...

These cards were made for a PAT (Pick-a-theme) swap. Instead of one overall swap theme, each player in a group (5 people) chooses a theme to which they'd like cards made. So instead of a few cards made to the same theme, you make one to each theme. Here, the chosen themes were cats (above), elephant(s),
(the fox was made as a hostess gift)
horses and Game of Thrones.
Funny enough, everyone in our group chose animals except the GoT person. My chosen theme was black birds (a common choice for me as I collect cards with black birds on them).

All of these ATCs are ones where I had the background already, either from gifts or from background swaps. I added all the rest of the stuff, but it's fun to work on other people's backgrounds sometimes - just maybe inspires you to work in a slightly different direction than you might normally take.

A couple of swaps I joined recently - the first one had a theme of "just one eye" - you could interpret that theme any way you liked, so I had a go at it in a variety of ways. It was great fun.
The second shown here was more straightforward - it was simply an owl theme.

A quilt which has been waiting to be quilted for a long time - but decided that it would make a good gift for a friend who got married a while back. Now I just need to get some binding on it...
