I participated in the New Beginnings Mini Quilt Swap that was held over at The Quilting Gallery this spring. I haven’t done a swap in a couple of years, and I really enjoy them. Now that my partner has received her mini quilt, and I have received mine, I thought that I’d share with you.
Here are the wonderful things I received from my partner, Doreen, in South Australia! Not only did I receive a wonderful mini quilt, but Doreen made a sweet scissor holder, which can hold full size and smaller scissors, and sweet little needle holder with a spool of thread, a couple, yes two, pair of the cutest scissors, and a booklet of postcards showing some wonderful areas where she lives in South Australia.
Here are more pictures of the goodies….
I love the flower button detail on the side of this sweet needle case!
Check out the little scissor charm that she added to the front of the scissor holder, what a great idea!
Doreen also stitched this sweet label, and note the little butterfly charm on the top right corner! Thanks so much Doreen, I really appreciate all of the work you did to make this such a special swap!
My partner (Teresa) that I sewed for is located in Portugal. Do you remember this picture that I mentioned in my last post?
It was for my mini quilt swap quilt.
I used fabric called Natural Garden by Holly Taylor for Moda. I wanted to do something a little different, that represented nature and spring. The colors reminded me of the first crocus you see in the spring, and the red tulips that follow. I made some shabby fabric flowers from some of the fabric, that are pinned on, so the quilt can be washed.
I also added a couple of post cards of Washington, and a treat of chocolate candy eggs (yum!) in her package, but didn’t get pictures of those. I hope that my partner enjoys her quilt. Stop over and visit Teresa’s blog, Quilting Stitching and Sew On. She does some wonderful quilts that I know you will love to see!
Thanks for coming by!
