Chimney Sweep

The 4th Another Little Quilt Swap is approaching it's end, with quilts being sent and received. I know the little pink and grey quilt I made has reached Carol safely, and while I was away at summer break my little quilt from Lisa arrived. The whole neighbourhood probably heard me scream with delight when I opened the parcel and saw this gorgeous little Chimney Sweep quilt



I am absolutely thrilled! It is sooo perfect! No wonder Lisa calls herself Miniaturequilter! She really has a talent for working with tiny little pieces, each of the blocks finish at 3.25" - with those squares finishing 3/4"!

In the parcel there were some other goodies - some very cute reproduction charms, some blue FQs that will be great in my DJ, a lovely appliqué tea towel, stickers and cards



Thank you so much, Lisa!!
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

The Cherry blossom tablerunner is so cute. What a great gift. I wish I could think the way you do....when someone's birthday or whatever comes up, I always run to the store to buy something instead of making something which would be appreciated and cherished alot more. You've got me thinking now though!
Take care.
