2016 Free Boms

A visit from my swap fairy.

The Happy Easter Fairy visited me this year, thanks to the swap organised by delightful Karen from Mrs Martins Quilt Shop.  We have the same partners for the year and I am lucky enough to have super talented Gayle as my partner.  All of her gifts come tantalisingly hidden in beautiful boxes and my Easter gift was no exception.

Again, I was thoroughly spoiled by lovely Gayle.

 Am afraid I can't show you all the little chocolate eggs inside my basket as they looked too delicious to wait, so I gobbled them down straight away but the rest of my goodies are here for you to see.

I sent this candle mat, a chocolate rabbit and some easter muffin pans to her. 
This gorgeous free pattern can be found HERE at Better Homes and Gardens.  It's called Hippity Hop.
I'm ashamed to say I've only just discovered Jeanne Ray Crafts.  It's my loss because it is a fabulous place.

They have featured a Block of the Month project every year since 1998, making this project their 16th! How amazing, so kind and generous.

This years BOM, The Pixie Garden Quilt, features Pixie Posy and the inhabitants of her wee garden: Red Bird, Blue Bird, Inchworm, Butterfly 1, Butterfly 2, Snail, Bee, Dragonfly, Flowers 1 & 2, and Lady Bug on her Mushroom. 

And how lucky are we as the patterns for January, February and March are still available.  Just click HERE. to zip over to their BOM page.
