Swap in Swap out

I've been doing some swaps over on flickr this summer.   My latest is called 'For the Love of Solids'.
This is what I've just sent off to my partner:

 A mini quilt, and a pouch.
 I used the same block style that I had designed for the Jay McCarroll Challenge.

I'm pretty much in love with it, and really wanted to hang it on the wall of my dining nook, but I didn't.
It took me 8 straight hours to cut and piece these 4 blocks. I love all-day sew-ins at fabric depot sponsored by PMQG.

 Here's the back.

 This is the AMAZING package that I received from Sarah all the way from Shetland:

 It's pretty fabulous really, a wonderful 20" cushion cover which looks like it was born to live in my house. I guess it was :) , this totally darling quilted tic tac toe set which has been envied by everyone that has been through my house in the last few days,

 and a gorgeous colorblock zippered pouch that I'm just totally in love with, stuffed with goodies in the form of fabric and candy.

 I keep thinking, oh, I maybe don't really have the time to do anymore swaps for awhile, but then I get a package like this, and, well - I'm probably going to sign right up for another one :)

Cheers all!


  1. Thank you Jill! I really am delighted that you're happy with your swap :-) And I LOVE that wall!

  2. So glad you got something from my special friend Sarah - isn't she cool? Your mini quilt & pouch are stunning too! Jxo

  3. Those goodies are awesome! That cushion is just right with that feature wall. Sarah is one amazing lady, she has the biggest heart.

  4. Sarah, really, thanks so much, you are amazing - I smile every time I see the cushion, and every time I see that darling pouch in my purse! Thank you!

  5. So cute. What great swaps--both the one you made and the one you received!
