Spring Swap

I received my Spring Swap gift.  This was a swap organized by Dutch Sisters.  This is the first swap I have participated in.  My partner was Dawn from Maine.  Dawn primarily knits, so this was her first quilting project.

A beautiful table runner – I love the colours.

The hand-quilting is beautiful.  I have a hard time believing she hasn’t done it before.

She also sent some nice soap, two fat quarters and a little American Girl book with paper dolls and quilt stickers.  G1 quickly claimed that, as she LOVES American Girl.

The only problem is that my current table is too small.  I think I miss my big table the most of everything from Canada.  Well, maybe my dishwasher, but that’s another story.  Let’s just say that with a family of six, if we all ate off of full-sized dinner plates, I don’t think they would all fit on the table at once.  Dinners are very crowded.  When we get back home, this table runner will be the perfect size.

Thanks, Dawn!

  1. Dawn from Maine has never quilted before? Wow! It’s beautiful! I love the colours, too! I’ve made a lot of things, all of it involving hand sewing but I do my quilting by machine. You and your sewing have always been inspiring but this blog lit a fire under me to try hand quilting with my most recent project which was a queen-sized quilt. I borrowed my Mom’s frame, set it up and discovered in about 2 stitches that it’s not at all for me. It made me very glad the batting came in one big sheet because it meant that quilting wasn’t strictly necessary. I did as much as I could by machine and that was it. The very brief experience made me appreciate your vast talent more than I already did! Kudos to anyone who’s got the patience! 🙂
