OHGWQ - New fabric Swap

I had plenty of quilt squares for the One Hundred Good Wishes Quilt for Lizzy. I also goofed and rotary cut several of the scissor cut 8 inch fabric squares to a mere 6 inch square by mistake. I am going to use these smaller squares on the wall "sampler" I want to make to go along with the quilt. Lizzy will have a smaller version of a quilt to hang in her bedroom wall since the queen size quilt will be a bit large for her to use in her early years.

So I joined a new quilt square swap with the theme "Chinese Culture". I selected to swap fabric about Chinese musical instruments. I found this really pretty (WOW) purple fabric with the Chinese people playing musical instruments. I am now working on the "wish" that goes with it, then will cut the 9 inch squares.

I have until March 1st to complete but when I leave things to the last minute.........

Oops! You've got a great plan though with the wall sampler.

That is beautiful fabric!

Wonderful to hear from you on my blog. I am not TA, but my friend Leda who wrote you above is.
We are still waiting for our LID, so we have a very long way to go.
I see you have pictures of the Belagio in Vegas below. My husband and I stayed there 3 years ago. It was great.
I love your quilt square and would like to swap if you like.
Let me know.

I really love this swap. If you have a chance to join a Chinese "Culture" swap, you need to do it. Each fabric square is about something to do with China. We are learning alot and this will be a great addition to Lizzy's quilt scrapbook of "Wishes".
Thank you all!
