In yesterday’s mail I received my mini quilt from Kimmie in Oregon. She and I swapped charm packs of fabric and were to make whatever we wanted for each other. This was organized through an online quilting bee. Check out http://www.quiltingbeeblocks.com/ if you are interested in joining one of these groups. I would encourage you to try it. It is a great way to meet other quilters and expand your quilting horizons! Not to mention it is just plain fun. This is the mini I received from Kimmie. It is about 18 inches.
A beautiful “watercolor” heart! This had to be a challenge not only because these are one inch squares, but the fabrics I sent her were somewhat subdued and not a lot of color variations. Kimmie did a great job of placing the fabrics, and the piece is also beautifully quilted.
Also in the envelope were a few extra gifts! Lucky me!
A pretty journal, two cards of cute buttons, a darling Laurel Burch cat magnet (looking great on my refrigerator door) and a craft pattern for cute fabric cupcakes. How much fun can one envelope contain? Thank you so much, Kimmie. It was so much fun being your partner in this swap!
