New Mini, New Swap and a Heart

New Mini Quilt for my Creative Space

I made this block for my "Oh my Stars" Quilt but it just didn't fit with the feel of the quilt that I am aiming for so I have made it into a Mini Quilt.

A little practise at Hand Quilting

It now hangs with another Mini Quilt I made a little while back

Initial Heart Swap Received

I was so excited yesterday when postie arrived.
He had a parcel in his hands and I didn't know who it was from. 
I opened it to find this ....

My special Initial Heart made just for me, some yummy chocolates a cute little notebook for my handbag all from Illene.  Thank you Illene, I love them all.

This now hangs in my sewing space so I can enjoy seeing it every day :o)

I have also made it in to the next round of the Doll Quilt Swap, Round 12 and my first time.

I now have my secret partner and need to come up with some ideas. This round you have to use a solid other than white and incorporate at least one of 5 different blocks.

Churn Dash/Shoofly
Log Cabin
Drunkards Path
NY Beauty
Flying Geese.

I need to stalk my secret partner a little before I start this one.

Happy stitching, Sharon
