I have been having some great fun finishing projects. First, I finished my summer mini quilt swap and it is packaged ready to go to Europe. Can't tell you any more than that. I named it Dew on the Daisy. I really think it is quite pretty.

I also finished the pillow and lap throw for my nephew and his bride to be on September 12th. I love Holly Taylor's Moda fabric and this year's is no exception. The lap throw is the "Cabin Fever" created for Frosted Memories. I added a border so that it is a bit bigger and I used the Qbot to quilt snowflakes on the cornerstones and inner border. I think it turned out quite well. If you click on the cornerstone I think you can see the snowflake. Loads of love anyway.

What a difference a center makes

I have not had much time to sew lately with schools starting and work hectic. I did spend a bit of time tonight working on my mini summer quilt swap. I have never done a Dresden plate block and I had picked up some gorgeous daisy prints earlier this summer. Daisies and summer go together in my book. Well, my creative juices are going and I added some old crystal beads I had in my sewing room and now I believe I am going to call it "Dew on the Daisy" as the bit of sparkle reminds me of that. Be sure you click on the picture because then you can see the sparkley thread also. I just had to take these two pictures because the center made so much difference in the block. I'll be certain to show you the finished block before I mail it away.

Another Swap

I am just loving it. I love to give gifts and it is fun to get packages in the mail. Hurry over to Quilting Gallery and join in the fun. This is the cutest little bag and just think of what you could put in it.
Wanted to include a picture of all of us from Mitchell who went to Quilts and Vines last Saturday. I know some of you read Sara's blog (she is in the picture). I am in the hat on the right in the back.
