Sweet Swap Delight!


Lori at Humble Quilts hosted another enjoyable mini quilt swap. This is the fabulous quilt I received from Christy in Oregon. Look at all those geese! I think this is particularly appropriate for the spring (or rather lack thereof) we have had this year. The geese just keep going round and round since they don’t know whether to head south or go back home! I love this kind of border.
And look at this sweet label. Hand embroidered!
 
She also included these lovely dish cloths and a beautiful packet of French General fabrics. Thanks again Christy!! 


Here is the little quilt I sent to Shannon in Wisconsin. I loved these little square in a square blocks with those bright reproduction centers, but it didn’t occur to me that they would become really “square” when the little block was set on point. I still like it, but it was not the look I had intended. Life’s lessons! 

Thanks Lori for another really fun swap!

  5. I think your little quilt is charming, regardless of how the squares are oriented.
    Christy is my real life friend who I went to Peru and Colombia with! Her little quilt is super darling!!

  10. The quilt you received is wonderful with all those flying geese. Yours turned out great! The background fabrics make those squares pop :)

  11. Both of those sweet little quilts represent how charming dolly quilts are! I think our geese are very confused here also...from a blizzard of 2 weeks ago to 72 degrees yesterday...

  12. Very sweet little quilts! Had to laugh at your unintentional design result. If that can happen to you with all your years experience, then I don't feel so bad. Somehow I always get this shocked 'why did this happen' and feel like I need to slap my forehead . lol So much pre-thinking and then the color/fabric draws us in and messes us up! Audrey

  15. I too like flying geese borders. I have a large star quilt that has a flying geese border.

  16. I like both of these, and even if the squares weren't quite what you planned they worked out well.

  17. Hi Wendy, These quilts are both darling. We love the colors and patterns and a swap is such a great idea. It is so much fun to see all the imagination from our quilting sisters ! Thanks for the lovely photos, from Marina and Daryl Lynn

  18. Both quilts are so sweet. I know what you are saying about the block orientation but it’s still sweet as can be and more complex the closer you look at it.
