September Mini Quilt Wrap Up.

I signed up for another round of 6 - 12 inch Mini Quilt Swap at the start of September and got Kay. This was her first swap ever! Look at the beauty she made me!

A mixture of feed sack, vintage and new her little note said. Can I quietly whisper I don't know what feed sack is though! *blush* She also enclosed some pink floral material for the stash. I didn't get a chance to get it in the photo as apparantly it was the perfect length and colour for a certain nearly 4 year old Miss's teddy. Thank you Kay, its lovely! Your not a swap virgin any more!

And this is what I sent Kay in return. A chance to practise my FMQ and use up some left over sanil trail blocks from a certain recent Round Robin quilt....

Love your snail-trail quiltlet! Beautiful quilting as always; I really like the micro-stipple in the centre, and the rest unquilted!

I'm glad you liked it! LOL, a swap virgin no more :) Feedsack is described well here http://www.quilthistory.com/feedsacks.htm I rummage through antique and thrift stores searching for it. I think I enjoy the hunt as much as I do sewing with it :) Thanks again for the beautiful quilt and cat fabric, it was a really good experience swapping with you :)I'm hoping to blog later but I'm heading to New York City in the morning for the day tomorrow so I'm running around getting all the last minute stuff done.
