Hoop Up! Stitch and Send Swap is a collaborative quilt block and embroidery swap I joined in December. I've been assigned a group of six other stitchers and we are each to decide on a theme, stitch an initial design, and mail fabrics to our teammates by January 20.
My theme is Ed Emberley–inspired worlds, like this:

Ed Emberley is an illustrator who authored a series of books that support his philosophy that with the right elements, anyone can draw! I've asked each of my teammates to choose a city, state, or country to illustrate in Emberley's style. I chose Copenhagen, Denmark.
Ed Emberley's artwork has been licensed for fabric (and other things, too) in Japan. *SIGH* Why won't it come here??
