Mini quilt swap - this is what I got!

This is the lovely lovely mini quilt which my swap partner Jodie made for me. I LOVE it!
We exchanged quite a few emails thoughout the swap and I asked Jodie if she would incorporate a bird somewhere in the quilt for me (you know how I like birds) and I didn't want any hanging element to it as I'm planning on framing it.The photo's I've taken really don't do it the justice it deserves (I blame the inconsistent June weather for this).

Also in the package was this little owl:these ricrac cards and a great selvedge keyring:and stash galore:and it all came wrapped in this package:All this loveliness is only made better by the fact that I have now made a great virtual friend too :o)
I must also thank Mrs Lucy Locket Pocket too for organising this swap - top swap job Lucy!

Lastly, can I just say TFI Friday!

What a great parcel from Jodie! Your mini-quilt is adorable and the stitching is so neat. (My machine embroidery always seems somewhat wonky!)

I think Lucy really excelled herself on this swap :)

Gorgeous, you lucky girl! ALthough I have to admit yours was pretty fabulous too.

Jodie said...

I'm glad you like it - this whole swap thing can be a bit nerve wracking. I was soo pleased to get partnered with you.

Kitty said...

Oh wow - I think I've yet to see something Jodie's made which I don't like, but that mini quilt is stunning. Just beautiful. Mind you, the one you sent her was gorgeous too - both lucky recipients.

Lucy is a swap organiser extraordinaire. x

Just popped over from Jodie's blog. Your selvedge quilt is just fantastic - love the greens. And you are so lucky to get the owl, he looks so tactile and snuggly. :D Ooh, and the packaging too... she's a star that Jodie!
