Summer Quilt


I woke up today with a good feeling. I mentioned to my DH that I was sure my 4Seasons Quilt would arrive today and guess what . . . .


I can't tell you how much I love this. It is great and Janey has done such a lovely job of it. Here are some close-ups of the details.





Look at those ants made from buttons.


It is so completely different to anything I would do and that's why I love it. In fact that's why I love these swaps so much as we get to see how other quilters work.

Janey also kindly included some other goodies.




I am very lucky and want to thank Janey very much. All my family love this too. Great swap !!

Very hard case! I guess she has problems when on a picnic with those button ants - the very worst kind! Enjoy!

I had my spring quilt from Janey, but I have to say, I wish I'd had the summer - it's great. Haven't had my own summer one yet - soon, I hope!
