I have a confession and an apology to make. And a story to tell. I misled you but it was for the best of intentions and now that Margaret has received my Four Seasons Spring Swap quilt I will tell you the full story.
The Four Seasons Swap is run by Margaret and she organises the lists of people, assigning someone to make a quilt for every participant and a person for everyone to make a quilt for. It is not a direct swap so the person who will receive the quilt I make is not the person who will be making a quilt for me. It is run this way so that we can blog about the quilts we are making and the recipient will not know if it is the quilt they are to receive or not. And a lot of the fun in the swap is reading all the blogs and wondering if that lovely quilt is the one you will receive - or maybe this one or that other one! So because Margaret is the Swap Mama, she obviously knew who would be making her a quilt but she promised me she wouldn't look at my blog so I could tease you all with the quilt I was making. BUT the very first blog entry I made on the Spring Quilt, she was the very first person to comment. So I engaged in a little misdirection. Well a lot actually. I carried on making this quilt for Margaret but I blogged about something different entirely.
I had designed the vase of flower quilt in EQ6 and decided against making it but when I put the design on the blog as one of my red herrings it garnered a fairly enthusiastic response so I started making it and pretended that it was the quilt I was making for my swapee. I apologise for misleading you all. However, I get to keep this quilt AND the one that someone will be sending me!
