As the holiday’s approach it seems like gifts are on more on our minds. All through the summer there were many swaps going on. I have put together some of the swaps I have been involved in, these are from instagram swaps.
This is the most recent swap I was involved in on instagram. It was called the #enchantedforestmugrugswap. This cutie is what I received in the mail Saturday from Courtney, she is super talented and made this for me. She did beautiful paper piecing on the front of it.
This is the back, no less cute than the front. All that very special fabric, that I had never even seen some of before. I am going to hang it in a special place in my new sewing room. I am still transitioning, hope it is finished soon!!
Next is this little mini that was made for me by Carmen. Isn’t it adorable? She made it using paper piecing also. This is hanging in my kitchen. It was part of the #strawberryswap.
I made this for my partner and sent it off to her this summer. I really enjoyed the paper piecing. It was so much fun being involved in all of these swaps. Since not everyone is on instagram I thought I would share here so you don’t miss out. I know there are a lot of swaps going on all the time.
My purpose for showing these mini quilts was for two reasons, to share them with you and to give you ideas for gift making. I have these three books that I love browsing through. I plan on making a few gifts from them soon. I am currently working on one already. I will show it when I am finished.
I hope you are enjoying the fall, it is a great time for sewing and stitching inside!! My instagram name is @cloverandviolet2 if you are on instagram and want to follow. It’s a great addition to blogging!!
