June Mini Quilt Swap Recieved!

I recieved some unexpected mail yesterday. This sweet little mini quilt from the amazing Susan. It is so tiny and cute, 6 x 7 inches. It was for the June round of the 6 - 12 inch mini quilt swap that I signed up for. June? Huh, but it's September? My swapee never sent the mini she made me, well I don't think she even made one, her replies were always focused on hoping to get in her sewing room later in the week. Okay.............. I don't understand why someone would sign up for a swap if they can't commit to it. If some thing comes up and you can't do the swap, at least return what you recieved. Part of me is a bit cross that the sweet little house now belongs to someone who didn't go through with their end of the swap. And then part of me just shrugs it off as swap experience, I've done a few swaps now and this is the first that was been a dud experience.

But Susan is a legend and whipped up this little beauty as a replacement which was very sweet of her. Thank you Susan, you are one hot swap mama!

That's a great little quilt Helen. The one you made should have been returned to you and then you could have it hanging on your wall

Oh I am sorry to hear about your swap partner. And to think I complained about not-getting a thank you - at least I got a quilt!!!

Nice one Susan!!

Glad you got something in place of your missing swap. That must restore your faith a little. I had that happen to me once in a Secret Santa, but at least I hadn't spent hours working on it.

i'm so sorry about your swap experience. that's such a great group too. i haven't been able to participate lately...way to busy...some folks just over commit...i guess.
