Four Seasons Quilt Swap - Fall

I joined the Four Seasons Quilt Swap recently full of anticipation and then the anticipation turned to anxiety! I just didn't know what to do - I thought and I thought and then I thought some more (can you hear the Jeopardy music?). And, then there it was, the lightbulb moment - four huge oak leaves with a nice border would make an adorable tabletopper (you know I love table toppers!). It could be a wallhanging, too. On Sunday, I made eight blocks (well, I had to make one for my table, too - LOL) - added sashing and borders and called it a flimsy. Then yesterday I quilted it; sewed the binding down last night and now it's DONE!!! I need to add a label and then pack it up and send it away. Now, I'll just say silent prayers and hope that she likes it. Sigh!
Just a little note - I received an e-mail recently that my swap partner mailed my quilt - it hasn't arrived yet. :-(

Thanks for visiting - please come again!

In Friendship!

Stunning, if she doesn't like it, you have my address. Love the colours in the fabrics. Did you do one for yourself using the same fabrics?

How brilliant to make one for yourself to, while working on the other one!

Hum.... there must be something wrong with Google Reader program. I have been dying to read a new blog entry from you. You know the need for valid disruptions from paper writing. I waited patiently all day. Finally, it shows one and there's already 15 comments from early morning. Geeez, I'm late! I guess it means I need to start stalking! lol I think your swap partner will love it! Good thinking to make one for yourself! You can never have too many table toppers! ;o) Off to continue with this paper! Hope you're having a great day!
