More Swap Lovelies

Hope you all have had a great weekend!
Mine started with this wonderful parcel which the postman delivered on Saturday....
This lot of loveliness came from my Doll Quilt Swap 11 partner Lynda... everything was perfect, my favourite colour combo (aqua & red), beautifully pieced quilt & some very thoughtful extras, thanks so much again Lynda!
I finished another couple of projects, the first is on its way to Denmark:

This was my first time at hexies - I used quilt patis & really enjoyed all the hand stitching... I was a bit nervous about how they would all keep together, so I machine quilted them with variegated thread & I really love the quilty pattern on the back....Fingers crossed my partner will like this
On a technical note, for this mug rug I did a fake binding sort of thing & used the backing... if you would like a wee tute on how to do this, let me know
Another project I managed to complete was this which will be posted off to a lovely new quilty friend in the States, but I can't say anymore as I want it to be a surprise!
So what have you been up to this weekend? Hope whatever it was you had a great time!


  1. Love the hexie mug rug and the way you quilted it. Also love your new photo. One day I'll actually get a half decent photo of myself and when I do I'll be whacking it onto my blog so fast because who knows when I'll get another one. :-)

  2. Hi Susan!
    You're very observant! (& also very funny!) I love reading your comments - they make my day!

  3. Love this hexie MR. And the quilting finishes it off perfectly. Jxo
