Stitchgasm! – Phat Quarter, Five-themed Swap

The Phat Quarter group is a rocking little joint.

We’re home of the Mr X Stitch community on flickr. We know how to throw a wildly successful and rewarding artists’ swaps. Jamie “Mr X” Chalmers himself refers to them as “legendary.” He will not get an argument from me.

The Phat Quarter Swaps are tied to the Fifth Friday Festivals of Fabulousnesses that occur each month containing five Fridays. In August 2013, the Mr X Stitch website celebrated five years as the coolest, most edge-pushing home of contemporary needlework. To recognize that awesome accomplishment, our Phat Quarter Swap theme was the number five.

And the Phat Quarter artists played with fives and bent that theme to their creative will. Check out the amazing work here.
