Sneak peak and It's A Sister Thing Swap reminder

This past week was filled with end of school year activities for the kidlets and some super fast sewing for me. I'm working on another kids art quilt but this one is for Sunshine's school by request of their art teacher just a few weeks ago. Though I still have one more row to add to the quilt top and the school's name to applique onto it, the rest of the top is done. Here is a sneak peak.
I wanted to have this part completed before the last day of school so that all of the kids could see it and find their own blocks in it. As I expected they were super excited when I unfolded it. The teachers hung it on the wall and they located the blocks made by each and every child. 
The school wanted to leave it up hanging on the wall for a couple of weeks, through the start of summer camp, so after that I will pick up back up and get it finished. When it is completed, it will hang permanently in the school's lobby for all to see when they enter. 
I also wanted to remind you that the deadline to join in on this year's It's A Sister Thing Swap is coming soon (Monday, June 30th) and you don't want to miss out on this fun Secret Santa type event. All of the info about the swap can be found here. You will have all summer to stalk your "sister" and to make 1 item for her. Last year I know of one "sister" that sent frequent small teasers to her "sister" before she sent the final package at the end of August. Of course I knew who the teasers were coming from but I didn't tell and the receiver was so tickled that her "sister" would make the swap so much fun.

So if you want to play along, make sure you read through the instructions carefully and then email all your pertinent information. Then add the button to your blog and spread the word. The more the merrier! Like last year, this is going to be a blast.

Have a great weekend!
