Good Monday Morning! How are things with you? I'm back in business with coffee and coughing, but I feel so darn good compared to last week I'm calling this cold over! Take that germs!
Anyway, lucky for me and you because today is my day on the Little Quilts blog tour. Just to bring you up to speed, my pals Amy and Sarah wrote this super cute book, Little Quilts! I love that it celebrates their friendship quilt style, since so many of us are friends through quilting. You can read on Sarah 's and Amy 's blog about the book and how they came around to writing it.
So onto the super fun super scary to me part! They've devised a secret swap between some friends and over the course of the next month or so, we'll be making a little quilt to send to our swap partner. Of course I know who my TOP SECRET SUPER SWELL swap partner is, but choosing something to make for them? Yikes! Do I choose something that says 'swap partner' do I choose something that says 'me' to my partner, and don't even get me started on what quilt to make. I've had my eye on that basket quilt since I first saw it on Amy's blog. And that bee... Could I even embroider well enough for that? I love it so much. You'll see, the people on the list are some pretty amazing quilters, so there's pressure all over the place! Well honestly, not really, won't a swap partner love anything? I THINK SO.

To spice things up a bit more, Cico books is giving away a copy of Little Quilts at each stop along the way, so leave me a comment giving me some advice on the swap, and I'll announce the winner next Monday. Don't worry, even if you don't win, you'll have some more chances coming up to try again along this blog hop!
Thanks Amy and Sarah for including me in on this fun secret swap, and thanks to Cico books for sending me a copy of it to use!
Ok everyone! Have a great week! xop
