Good things!

Hi everyone!

I have done a couple of great swaps in the last couple of months…

I joined the X & + block swap for the 2nd round and this time it was hosted by Angie…who also ran a text and dot swap at the same time so I joined that one too.

Angie was so great to me – she cut my strips for the text and dot swap and then let me fill up the returning envelope with as much as I wanted!

This is the loot that arrived on Thursday!

The Flea Market Fancy goes perfectly with my collection of Ruby…love it!

Yesterday I felt like loading a quilt onto the machine…so I got mum to bring one of hers over.

This is as we are rolling it back of the rail…all finished!

The quilt is made from a layer cake and a jelly roll of Verna. It is a big quilt too, 90” x 80” approx. so it took me all afternoon to quilt. I just free motion stippled it as I am still learning and this quilt taught me a couple of new things!

Great bundle of goodies and your mum's quilt is gorgeous.
You quilted it in one afternoon? Wow!

Wow, you are getting good at this. How much longer is the long arm machine living at your place? Maybe you should start a quilting service;). Lovely stuff you got in the swap. Are you going to do the ALQS7? Have a great weekend. xx

Jess well done on quilting this large quilt... Makes a job so much easier doesn't it?

Gorgeous quilt. So nice that you have a long arm. What fun! I've been coveting one, but no room here, so I'd have to buy a new house!
