Swaps and Bees

Hi all,

So far this year I have only joined in on one swap and now I have joined a bee…

This is the results of the Name Game Swap -


This is the quilt I made for my partner who blogs at Piecing Light. I got the plus design from the Modern Blocks book and just extended it to the size I wanted.


The letters are raw edge applique and the font is my new fav “Cafe Rojo”. I used it on the eyechart mini too.

This is the quilt I got -


Made for me by Marissa in Florida USA – no blog that I know of. Very exciting getting a parcel from overseas!

I joined a Bee with a facebook Aussie quilting group, there are a few girls I already know (via blogging) so I already feel at home!


This dresden plate is for Jane. Jane is going to put the plates on the backing fabric herself and finish the middle circle too! I can’t wait to see this quilt finished!

I have a few other things to show you but I am waiting for the rain to go away so I can get some decent photos!

Youd made a great quilt for the swap and recieved a lovely one in return. The dresden looks exciting.

What an interesting dresden plate. I'd love to see the finished product. What cute mini quilts, too.

Love both the quilt you made and the one you received. Such fun ideas. And I also really like the Dresden plate; I doo can't wait to see this quilt together.

Lovely work Jess. Don't you love it when the surprises arrive in the mail?
That dresden plate is a real eye catcher. Great colours.
