|Tom and the kids (not really)|
|My Backyard...just kidding (sort of)|
During this long, hot summer, I have participated in a few swaps with fellow quilters. The first swap was the 80's Swap. Remember the 80's?? My partner surprised me with the best gift, a replica of my Sony Walkman...
| Me in my Sony Walkman days...and when I used to exercise! |
OTHER GOODIES SHE INCLUDED
|More Ruby Star Rising fabric|
|A needle holder|
|Some of my favorite fabric!|
|Outside of the needle holder|
|A retro bag!|
|An MTV Pincushion!!!!!! I loved my MTV|
Then, I participated in another Doll Quilt Swap. My partner requested colors of orange, aqua and gray. I came up with two ideas....
Eventually, my finished version looked like this...
|Finished quilt...now to bind|
|Closer view of hand quilting|
|Bound and ready to mail|
|My partner has two little girls so finger puppets, Christmas monkey fabric, awesome Christmas book and a Sarah Jane fabric panel|
And I received this from my partner....
|Isn't this little quilt so cheerful and bright? I love it!|
THANK YOU A GIRL IN PARADISE! I LOVE IT!
