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.

  1. I love the fabric, its going to be lovely. I've never done the quilt swap tell now and I'm very excided about going and getting the fabric on Wednesday for mine.
    Its alway nice to meet new ladies no matter where they live.

  2. I was so pleased with the spring blossoms mini quilt swap, which was the first I ever participated in! I,too,was lucky to know two wonderful fellow quilters from the swap process.
    I gladly signed up for the summer swap...and have to get started on a quilt for a special lady!
    I love your goodies you brought home!!!!

  3. I have to admit that the Spring Blooms Mini Swap was pretty darn fun. I love the quilt that I received from you Bec and I'm sure that the person you send to this swap will love whatever you make. I think that getting to meet other quilters is a really wonderful part of these swaps!
