Swap


Wow....I'm so overwhelmed with all the comments on my spool block quilt, it seems to be a favourite with many quilters. Thanks for all your responses, sorry if I don't respond to all of you.

I participated in a Secret Sister Swap with my local quilting group. I was given 3 FQ's to make something, the above little churn dash quilt is what I made and gave to my Secret Sister at our meeting last week.
This very cute stitched tablerunner is what I received from my Secret Sister. Isn't it so whimsical with the flower baskets going in both directions. I love the little purse filled with wild flowers.
Boo Boo is now save at home with his Mommy. I almost lost him again on the day my daughter was coming to pick him up. Apparently.....there is another "hole in wall" hidden in one of my kitchen cabinets. Boo Boo finds everything....owning a old house has many surprises. I'll miss him but at least I'll slept better.

Happy Quilting.

Hey, the Secret Sister Swap gifts are just great. The table runner is sweet as can be - love the stitchery on it! Sounds like Boo Boo has scouted out all areas that need attention at your house - maybe he was trying to point you in the direction of repairs needed, lol, what a cat! A pretty one. Hope your daughter enjoyed her trip. :-D

Beautiful quilts Wendy -- both such different styles, but both so pretty! BooBoo looks like such a sweet cat -- maybe he found a mouse that he had to chase! ;-D

You and your secret sister received fabulous little quilts. They are adorable. Love the purse with the flowers, too. :-)

Wendy, your churn dash is darling. I love blue and brown together. What a lucky secret sister to receive that from you. The table runner you received is sure cute too. A lot of work went into that one as well.
Great picture of Boo Boo.
Take care and have a wonderful week.

Now that was one AWESOME secret sister exchange!

Your Secret Sister Swap sounds similar to one I did amongst my Bee Group last year. I love what you did with yours! Sew Cute!!
The stitched table runner is very sweet. I have always admired hand stitching though I have never attempted it.
Beautiful Kitty... Bye- bye Boo Boo. Sleep well Wendy! :0)
P.S. Your spool quilt is fantastic!!! :0)
