Here's a peek at a tiny section of my Booty Swap quilt.
A couple years ago I attended a workshop in hand applique but I've never made a single thing using it. So why did I decide to try it on this little quilt? Because I'm crazy! It's taking me much longer than I had thought. For awhile I disliked this piece (a process I seem to go through with every quilt), but I'm feeling better about it again. My biggest regret is that I didn't make a compromise between what I thought my partner would like and what I like to do. If I enter another swap, I'll try to find that happy middle ground. I have at least learned a new skill (origami flowers), worked out a design on my own, and tried some hand applique.
