So first, I received from ShapeMoth. My package flew all the way from Germany, and it contained:
this incredible metal-frame pouch (just look at that linen!), and
this beautiful mini-quilt. I love the gradient effect and the quilting is fabulous.
Joanna really spoiled me with these lovely items!
On the other side of the swap, I sent to Krista. Krista really wanted placemats or an apron. I almost made an apron, but I was afraid not many people would have requested one, and I didn't want it to be obvious she was my partner.
Krista has three kids, so I wanted to make sure everyone had their own placemat.
These were really fun to make, and I know Krista really loves them!
I quilted each one a little differently, and bound them in various solids.
The triangle quilting was my favorite (I didn't want to let that one go!).
I also whipped up a little zippy pouch to send along, and stuffed it with some solids and a couple of prints.
Swaps are super fun, and I'm so glad I jumped in for this one.
I don't plan on joining any others until the new year, but I'm sure I will be tempted. ;)
P.S. I'm planning to post my very first tutorial here soon!
Have a great weekend!
