Wonderful Anorina at Samiela's Mum has organised a really fun swap. Yesterday I worked on my gift for a secret recipient and this is a sneaky peak. I based my mini quilt on an idea from Elefantz Home, Jenny's wonderful on-line monthly magazine.
This swap has been lots of fun.
Lovely Erin was my January Swap partner in Quilting Block Swaps Australia. She's the very talented person who sent me the amazing owl block I blogged about here on the Feb 2nd post.
Erin requested either an Abstraction block or a Birds in the Air block. First I made a Birds in the Air block but somehow I ended up with an eleven and a half inch square- don't know how I managed this - so into the scrap bag it went.
So I made Abstraction but just before I popped it in the envelope I thought I'd give it one more quick press and my iron decided to leave dirty marks on it - so into the bin it went.
Next I made Abstraction again, all went well and I popped it in the post about 6 weeks ago- but it did not arrive, so it's lost in the postal system somewhere.
So I made Birds in the Air again yesterday, this time carefully following the instructions. Fingers crossed this one will actually make it to Erin's house.
February's swap block was sent to my dear friend Fiona at Bubz Rugz. Fiona asked for a churn dash in civil war fabrics. I do love being part of this swap organised by super Sue from Quilted Hugs. It's almost time to start my March swap block - this one is to be any block in pink, cream and burgundy.
The next thing I need to make is an Easter present for a swap so I'm starting to search for patterns and ideas...
Nana Company. Amy can always be relied on to come up with something fabulous...
Just a reminder that tomorrow's Tuesday Treasures is a special one where we can all share our beloved pets.
Should be lots of fun and there is a giveaway too.
