Post Sewing Summit Swap

After the Sewing Summit, there seemed to be an unending pool of energy and inspiration.  Liz from Goddess in Progress decided we should take advantage of that and do a swap.  I signed up nervous to make for someone from the Sewing Summit, which had an unending supply of creative women.  In a funny twist, I received Valerie from Between Quilts and she received me.  My camera took such dark photos so I am going to use her photos so you can see the pretty, vibrant fabrics.  You can see her post here too!

Here is what I made her from Joel Dewberry Heirloom Fabrics with Orange Kona Solid.
I included a small pouch from RK Cupcake material and 2 fat quarters of Hullabaloo.  I love that line!!  I also love the Joel Dewberry.  How could you not?  I also included a produce bag from Daisy Jane's pattern.  Valerie had already placed the bag with her shopping bags.

Here is what I received:

Jealous?  I bet you are!!  I remember when this was posted in the Flickr group. I wanted it to be mine but I didn't even think about hoping it would be.  When I opened the box I was thrilled.  I had said in my likes before the swap that I LOVED bright colors and she listened. I haven't done much with this mini quilt but stare and pet it.  I am selecting a place to hang the mini quilt in my craft room, so I can always look at it for inspiration and creativity.

Thank you so much Valerie!!  I can't even find words to describe how much I love it. Plus, you have encouraged me to not be afraid to try some circles soon!!

  1. OK, Tracey - I think you are my new favorite person! You are so sweet and encouraging :). It makes me so happy to know you love the mini quilt. And I know I already said this, but I'll say it again! I love my pouch! I have it in my sewing room and it is such a bright and cheery spot in there. I don't know if I told you or not, but I have orange and aqua/blue as the main colors for decor in there - so that Citrine colorway of Heirloom is perfect! Thanks again. And can't wait to see your post-Christmas reveals!


What's on your mind??
