Purple, Blue and Green
So somebody formed a group on Facebook wherein people would swap fabrics and blocks and whatevers from Kaffe Fassett and associates fabrics. I'm wary of swapping with people I don't know, but it's been a while, so I thought I'd give it a try. The first swap was for 12" finished blocks using only fabrics from the KFC collective. People had the option of specifying the colors they would like. Some people were very particular; others were happy with whatever they received.
I was very specific. I wanted only blues, greens, and purples used in my blocks. I was excitedly looking forward to 20 or so gorgeous cool KFC blocks that I would make into some sort of a huge and delicious flimsy.
It all started ages ago, possibly in late March or early April. I made my blocks and mailed them during the first week. Then the blocks started trickling in. It was fun to
sit by the mailbox see what the postal person brought each day. The above blocks come pretty close to my specification. Some of them are terrific; others are kind of casually put together. The one with the big red portion may or may not work with the others.
Looking at these blocks makes me cranky. Makes me feel duped. Makes me want to get rid of them. Now there's an idea! Anyone out there want them? If more than one person stakes a claim, I'll draw a name on Friday night. They'll be in the mail on Monday. But don't say you weren't warned.
Now I feel better. Going to go to FB and withdraw from that there group. No point is explaining to them. Just quietly leave and get back to business. Thank you for listening.
