I had barely finished reading this post when I sent an email to Carla, another MCM friend, to see if she would be my swap partner. She agreed and we went to work on a color palette. Using the suggestion of Design Seeds, we quickly agreed on a color scheme. Now I would love to share the photo that actually inspired this color palette,Friendship x and + Swap Guidelines:1. Pick a friend to swap with: An invisible one (blogging friend that you have never met in real life) even!2. Pick a palette for your blocks (we used Design Seeds to find ours). Or decide to just go scrappy.3. Check out Amy Badskirt's tutorial to learn how to make the block.4. Add the Friendship x and + button to your blog sidebar.5. Decide how many total blocks you want for your quilts. Suz and I are going with 64 blocks and will be dividing them out for 8 months, making 8 each month.6. Every month you will make a set of blocks for yourself and an identical set for your swap partner. She will do the same for you. In my case, then, I will make 4 different xand+ blocks and an identical set of 4 to mail to Suz. With the 4 she sends me that month, I will have 8 blocks for that month.7. Blog about your blocks on the last Friday of each month. Also, feel free to use Instagram with the hashtag #friendshipxplusswap to show off your block and color palette.
See #7 above. So I'm a day late, which is actually pretty good for me.
