quilt swap!

Yesterday, when I was mailing my quilt out to my swappee, I got a package from Bonnie (who doesn't have a blog, otherwise I would link there!), containing this little gem:





I love the fabrics she chose; and she hand-quilted the top, so it feels very 1930s/1940s authentic. Bonnie, if you could see my decorating, especially my kitchen (where everything is in vintage blue Ball jars that I can possibly put in them), you'd see that this is just my style. How did you know? I'll look for the proper place to display this quilt. Everyone I've showed it to has oohed and ahed over ti.

And if that weren't enough, inside the package was a journal, including papers, letter stickers, and other cool embellishments to decorate it with.

I've really learned quite a lot about fabric, color, sewing, my Bernina, and how generous people can be.

I get a feeling faraway from my childhood by looking this guilt!We had many of them and my mother made also them. I was helping her by cutting pieces of clothes ( ? my words ).

I wish enjoyable working with your guilts.
