this month, but I have had a few - unfortunately for you, a couple of them are swaps &/or presents and I haven't heard that they have been received yet, so only a few snippets permitted for now!
This ones for a special friend - should be arriving any day now!
and this one is part of the Mini QT Swap for June which had a theme of Picnic/BBQ
It also should be arriving soon!
I have had one finish that I can show you completely here. As well as doing the Mini QT Swap of a mini quilt (see this post), I participated in May's Mini QT Block swap. I received all my lovely 3.5" blocks from all over, and this weekend I got them all put together, quilted and bound! Yay for me! (I'm notorious for not getting things completely finished!) In keeping with the quilt theme that month - B&W+1, Not Square, I've pieced them up in a pennant like shape.
and I decided I would quilt the particulars on to the front - much more visible than just having it on the back in a label.
That's right, I free motion quilted the writing on! I printed off what I wanted to say from my computer, stitched over it with an unthreaded needle to turn it into a stencil, transfered the design with my pounce pad, and then donned my quilting gloves and FMQd it. Very pleased with how it turned out, and I suspect I will be adding more writing to the fronts of my quilts now! Oh the options and ideas I have!
Earlier in the month I also received a wonderful package all the way from Australia! I had won a giveaway from Ann at A Good Yarn a ways back, and all my goodies arrived!
