GEN Q Stitch & Swap!

Gen Q peep, Jake Finch complied a bunch of great projects to swap, all in one fabulous book! You may know GENERATION Q Magazine?  Well, I just love them! ...And not just because they had me on the cover of their magazine! ( although that was kind of cool!)

But because the staff at Gen Q has become some of my favorite people... I mean it! All of them! So I had no problem making a project for their SWAP book!  There are many fun small projects in the book , that you can get together with your group of friends to make and swap; from bags, to scissors cases, to tea cozy's to placemats, and a very sweet mini wall hanging! (made by yours truly) ...which is super super easy, and can be hand quilted or not! ( depending on if they are quilt worthy or not.) HAHA!

Have you ever done a swap with anyone? I have several times, and I can tell you each time, The best things about them are, you get something amazing from someone you might not have ever known, You can learn something new by seeing how others work, and you get more ideas and inspiration!! (Like we need more, right?) ALWAYS!


How does this giveaway work?
I'm so glad you asked.
