Recently I was lucky enough to be partnered up with Sandra of Made in Hem on a Swap-bot swap. The theme was 'sew something nice' and boy did she excel in that department!! Not only did I get this very awesome mini quilt, but we also checked out each other's blogs and had a chance to get to know each other a bit, and it's always nice to add a new blog friend from the other side of the world!
|Isn't it beautiful?! You can just see my big toe down the bottom to get an idea of what size it is. |
I probably also should have ironed it before taking photos but I was too excited!
|All my favourite things - trees, leaves, woodland creatures, clouds, rain - I love it!|
|San has sewn over woolen fibres to create the trunk and the grass, I would never have thought of doing that and how she did it so straight and neat is beyond me!|
|The quilt is partially machine sewn with the details being hand embroidered|
I am really lucky to have scored Sandra for a swap partner for this one, I'd like to say I made my partner something just as fantastic but I would most definitely be lying.
|This was what my partner got|
And the big question, what to do with my mini quilt? Well, I'm thinking a big cushion. It'll need a nice thick fabric so I'm thinking a black denim, to complement the black piping around the edges. Now I just need to plan a trip to the shops to get some more fabric (oh, what a pity).
