Yesterday I shared the mini quilt I made for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap. I had so much fun making it that most of the time I forgot I also had an unknown partner who was also making a mini quilt just for me.
I had mentioned my favourite fabric line is Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics in the sign up form for the swap. I didn't dare hope I would be lucky enough to be matched with a partner who would use it so well.
And in black and white you can really see how it finishes off this mini perfectly.
One of the extras I received was this little purse. I am saving it to use for best so it has only been out with me a few times so far. Each time I do use it though I get a lot of comments on how special it is. I've had it taken from my hands a couple of times so it could be admired up close.
I am so happy I took part in the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt and I can't wait for the next round.
I was delighted when I did receive my surprise mini as it was this gorgeous envelope quilt. I'm in Australia and my partner, Kristin of gooba designs, is in America so it seemed very fitting to have a text print that has 'beyond the seas' featured.
The quilting is so lovely I had to get close.
