The Quilt Art list has an offshoot with which the members who wish to do so can swap small art quilts. JPGs of the quilts in question are sent to a central moderator and after they are posted on the group's web page a list of those that are wanted by each member are submitted. After some arcane mumbo-jumbo (the complexity of which I can hardly imagine!) each participant receives a quilt from among the choices. I submitted two quilts from a series I am making based on (1) hand dyed fabrics, mainly green but edging into blue and (2) simple shapes, so far rectangles and equilateral triangles. These are the quilts I submitted:

The two quilts I will be getting are on their way from England and will probably not arrive until sometime next week, but I can be patient and just savor their names for a few days longer: Sunset on an Alien Planet and Mimsy Borogroves. Both speak to my love of fantasy and science fiction. I even have their places to hang chosen. They will displace quilts I received in a couple of other exchanges, but change is good, Right?
