Brit Quilt Swap 3

Well I did finish my BQS3 Quilt ...


and it even got posted within the permitted time frame too!  

I loved making this little mini for my partner, she is a woman of amazing talent who I do admire, 
so you can imagine I wanted it to be just perfect. 
Sadly my last minute rush failed me, and the piecing of the quadrants didn't quite go to plan ...

but finish I did!


and I'm pleased to report that Sheila loves her mini quilt :)

and because it's a swap, well I got one too!


Isn't this just beautiful!


Thank you Catherine, I love it, and the goodies are safely being mused over in my studio !

It's been a funny week or so, with no hot water and a trip to A&E, that now requires follow up appointments at the Fracture clinic, hmm, sewing time has been scarce some days, and could be erratic to come ...

still there's always another swap to get involved in, what with the Japanese Charm swap, and the Low Volume charm swap ... there's always room for one more right?

Oh Trudi - are you ok? Obviously nothing broken in the arms or hands! I thought your mini for Sheila was stunning and perfect for her! Stay safe! Jxo

Uh, fractures aren't good! The swap items are both fab though :o)

Trudi was it you or the Diva who ended up with a fracture? Your swap items (both sent and received) are so bright and beautiful. Di x

Whatever has been going on in Trudiland? Fractures and no hot water?

Oh Trudes are you okay? Wot on earth have you been up to?!
Your sketchy mini is fabulous, and you did really well getting Catherines too!

Are you in a plaster cast? Hope whoever had to be taken to A&E isn't too badly hurt...
Your (Sheila's!) mini is wonderful, as is the one you received from Catherine! Please take care! xx

So glad that you liked it, and I love the one you made for Sheila. Hope the trip to the fracture clinic is anything horrid
