They Like Them!

YAY!!! Both of my packages were received today...and, apparently, the recipients are happy! I am so relieved! Much as I enjoy what I'm doing with my quilting, I still have that uncertainty about others actually holding my work in their hands. whew.

Okay. I told you I would show you what I made for Erin, my 'we double rock' mini quilt swap. Remember, her mini is the one that got skewed with the quilting. So, I got another charm pack of the Kansas Winter collection and made this pattern by Heather Mulder Peterson called 'Metro Girl'. About 20" square, I think? It was a challenge...a lot of cutting and piecing, but I think I did okay with it. It was definitely fun to see it all come together!
Here's the back...

Here's a closer look at the quilting. Wasn't sure about using black, but I think it looks really good (thanks for the push, Rachel!).

I also sent along this little table mat...about 8" square, I think. huh. I guess I did not take a photo of the finished product. Well, you get the idea. I sandwiched this, and quilted it along each side of the 8 seam lines, and put on the binding. These were left over charms from the same pack I used on her mini quilt.


One more... I sent Erin 'the amazing little gripper template handle' found here. Gotta get me one of those, for sure!

It's always a good day when I can make someone smile...and two in one day...well, I am very, very happy!

YAY back atcha! LOL! They are both beautiful! Love the black quilting... I think it brings an added sophistication to the finished piece! The block from the leftovers is sweet too! :-)
