I had a wonderful parcel in the post today, a quilt from my secret partner in the BritQuilt Swap. Wow, thank you Ethne, I am absolutely over the moon with the gorgeous quilt you made for me and all the lovely goodies you included in the parcel. During the swap we have been posting "work in progress" pictures on Flickr and I have to admit to coveting this quilt but I never dared to expect that it would be for me. When Ethne posted a picture of the quilt all finished I commented,
"This is absolutely gorgeous and I have just the right place for it in my little house, I wish! Beautiful stitching and such a great palette and design, all yummy."
I've taken some close up pictures so that you can appreciate the wonderful quilting that Ethne has done, in fact DH was with me when I opened the parcel and he immediately exclaimed, "Now that's what you call quilting". Ethne has painted with the thread to create wonderful texture and movement in the picture, clever girl.
Judith's blog that she has received the quilt I made for her and is also pleased, phew! Many thanks to all the organisers. If you're a Brit quilter why not join the Flickr group now and be ready for the next swap? Thanks to Teresa for getting me into this. Have a great weekend everybody.
