Another Little Quilt Swap .




Oh looky here at what I've got ! Isn't it great ? My lovely ALQS parcel arrived this morning from Becca. What a beauty ! It shows up a bit dark on my photo but my photography is not great to say the least. In the flesh the colours are beautiful - very rich purples and rusts. Just my cup of tea - lol !


Here is another photo with a close-up of the lovely hand-quilting. Such tiny stitches.
Becca also had a fantastic idea to pad out the box with squares from her scrap box. Wow ! I've had great fun sorting through and may have to have a play with these soon. It's so good having a nose at other peoples fabrics - lol ! Like when you're waiting in line in the supermarket and having a gander into other folks trolleys. Or is that just me ?
Anyway thankyou Becca - I love it.
I have been working on more borders for another quilt I've dug out and will show photos when I have anything to show.
Enjoy your week.

Beautiful quilt and rich in color and design. I just participated in a swap on a forum and received a quilt which doesn't deserve any mention. It was awful! But yours is definately a keeper and so thoughtful to send scraps. I adore your scrap quilts, especially the hand ones you do EPP on. What do you use for paper?
Enjoy your new little quilt, Ellena

What a cute mini-quilt. With the minis you can really see the pattern pop.

Lucky you... What a beautiful quilt. I don't do hand quilting as I cannot hand sew in a straight line. It looks more like zigzag by the time I have finished. Nip over to my blog and take a look at my hexagons. I promised I would show you. I don't know how much bigger it is going to get, I am getting impatient and want to quuilt it. LOL Can't wait to see what you are up to.

This is a GREAT quilt! I love the deep purple fabric. What a treat to come visit after being MIA for so long and stumble upon this beauty.

...and hand quilted to boot!

Thank you for sharing!
