Once again I signed up to do a swap as I enjoyed it so much last time. I got to know two lovely lady's, Tammy from Arizona who received my quilt and Jeanette from Mississippi who sent me my lovely quilt. They are both great lady's and although they are on the other side of the world I hope that one day I will get the chance to sit and have a coffee with them.
A few weeks ago I received the address of were my next quilt is to go (my quilts are getting to see more of the world than I am at the moment).
So once again I have had fun designing a quilt, although I have failed again in making it 12 1/2".
The centre is already 14 1/2 " and by the time the borders are on it, the quilt will measure 19 1/2". As I have said before I'm not good at making things small. So with project in hand I went to my local Quilt shop for some fun at hunting down the fabrics. What do you think of my choice I hope she likes them. I especial like the blue flower print on top, but that was the last of it so sad.
I was a bit naughty and came home with some extra but I couldn't walk by this box of moda Bake shop I am such a sucker for their fabrics, I do love their greens and reds they are always so nice. The other fabrics is Amy Butler and they are for a bag that I am making for some one, they are so her colours.
