|(personally, I thought they were really ugly, lol!)|
This is the first I have participated in this kind of swap where I was to receive more than one block at a time. When I got the mail and there were 30 (THIRTY!) blocks in it, I couldn't wait to see what they looked like together.
I posted them on my design board. As with most scrap patchwork, some of the individual parts were just plain ol' ugly, but together they are lovely! (suppose there are any metaphors for life there?)
I put the blocks on point. The layout I chose didn't require a lot of thought of how to place then when piecing. So, I grabbed up a row and started sewing. By the evening, I was almost finished piecing! As I sewed, I started thinking about how I would quilt the piece. I decided not to make a true quilt, but one I could make quickly and easily by myself. I would put a backing on it, stitch it together a little and use it for a picnic tablecloth.
By the time 24 hours had passed since receiving them, the blocks were transformed into a tablecloth and it was finished!

Whu? One commenter was kind enough to include a link to this "Explore." Apparently it's some recognition forum for photographers. My serendipitously crisp shot from my $100 craptastic Kodak One Shot has gone viral, bahahaha! Not really, but you get the gist.
