Fab Little Quilt Swap

Yes, another one! I kinda overloaded on swaps this spring! I think I might have to sit some out for the next rounds…


But it’s hard when they are so much fun! And I included a little La Petite Pouch and one of my new favorite quilting tools, a Frixion pen.


This one was a little quilt that I thought was a shooting star. Then someone said it looked like a kite with it’s tails flowing behind. I actually like that description even better!

FLQS-TheStart-ImFeelinCraftyIt began looking like this… And it just needed something…


So  I added something!


I’m loving the hand stitching and the embroidery thread. Now I just need to learn a few ‘real’ stitches!


And the back looked like this with my little tag.


And are you wondering what I got in this swap???


This amazing bundle from She Can Quilt! And boy can she quilt! I saw this piece during the progress photos and loved it! LOVED it. Then I saw her quilting and was really in love.


Check it out. It’s amazing! This quilting seems to be her style! Very cool!


And this is what it looks like.

Have you joined a swap yet???


  1. Looks like you’re having a good time with the swaps! I think the embroidery is a really great touch on your design. That quilting on the one you received just blows my mind. SO lovely!

  2. I don’t know how to quilt, Louise. I really need help! They are so beautiful! (You’re so crafty!) Once I drum up the courage (and the patience), I’ll be calling on you, my friend!

  3. Oh wow, this is amazing! They both look stunning! I’ve never made a quilt before, I must give it a go!

  4. I just nominated you for the SUPER SWEET BLOGGING AWARD! http://nikitaland.wordpress.com/2013/05/17/super-sweet-blogging-award/
