Brit Quilt Swap - Pillow Fight

I finished by BQS Pillow Fight cushion a couple of weeks ago, (all bar the label which I only did yesterday!)



So today it was all wrapped and taken to the local post office and  left in the capable hands of the Royal Mail. 


I do hope my partner is happy with it. 


I also got another package sent  :) 

And whilst I was busy at the bottom of the garden the post man called at my house, fortunately my neighbour took pity on me ...


all beautifully wrapped, this little lovely arrived from Helen, Archie the Wonder Dog!



This is such a beautiful cushion, and I just love it!  I am so glad Helen chose those beautiful batiks, and ignored my love of chartreuse! (the chocolate was delicious -  mmmmm!)



It fits in so well, on the bench .. 


and look, I already have a quilt to match!


right at home on my chair!

My Modern Christmas Table Runner is on it's way too, more of that tomorrow...

and today, despite the dark dismal wet weather I got quilting done, and yesterday I had a finish! 

I got my mojo back!

Happy Quilting!

I love the cushion you sent, and the one you received. Isn't it wonderful how well the one you got matches a quilt you already have.

Oh lucky you, getting Helen's cushion. I love it so much. Now sitting back to see who gets yours, which I have loved for weeks now. So glad your mojo is back and you are enjoying yourself back in the studio.

Making cushions is definitely on my Planned Project list - both of these are just fab!

Sheila said...

What a perfect swap, 2 beautiful cushions crossing in the post.

The cushion that Helen you is beautiful, and so is the one you made :)

I can't believe how well the cushion goes with the quilt - Archie is obviously better at sneaking through letter boxes than I thought! Love the cushion you made and the label (spotted on Flickr!) is wonderful!

Lis said...

Wow, love both the pillow you made and the one you received, great swap all round. Glad your mojo is back!

Just a teensy bit jealous Trudi!! Have been watching your gift grow over at Archie's blog and am so glad it has gone to a deserving home.
You obviously put in an amazing job on you own swap cushion. It looks gorgeous.

I saw Helens cushion over on her blog and told her how fantastic it would look in my bedroom: but it also looks great in your bedroom too! Love the cushion you made as well

Both the pillows are so lovely, your swap group is so talented.
