Shirt Swap.

May Chappell blog hosted a Shirt Swap last year. The shirts are made with the Shirts pattern by Carolyn Friedlander.

I made 8 shirts and requested 8 Pink shirts in exchange.

This one is from Karen in Franklin, North Carolina:

Finishing this quilt was one of my goals for 2015, and I am happy it’s now been quilted and hanging on the wall in my laundry/utility room:

By the way, I used silk pins to attach it to the wall. I hammered them in, making sure to avoid the studs. It’s a great way to hang quilts if you have sheetrock walls.

May Chappell is hosting another swap with a deadline in April. She’s added the Outhouse pattern by Carolyn Friedlander as an option for the swap. I have the pattern but haven’t made any blocks yet. I should get stitching.
