Little Quilt Swap #6

A few weeks ago, I posted about the "Little Quilt Swap" which is sponsored by Kate North from England....I have so enjoyed it that I am sure I will participate again.  If any of my readers are interested, you can go to her blog or click on the logo on my sidebar.

This is the quilt I made for the swap and sent to Arkansas.

Today I mailed the little quilt that I had made to the person whom Kate sent to me. The recipient of my quilt lives in Little Rock, Arkansas.  And when I got home, I was very pleasantly please to have gotten a quilt from Julie Waldman who lives in Oakland, CA!!!  I LOVE my is mostly (if not all) batiks...just beautifully designed and made!!

This is the beautiful little quilt I rec'd today from California!

My studioQ group met today.  There were only seven of us present but we still had a great time!  The gal who was to have it had to cancel at the last minute so we thought we had no where to meet...then one of the Q'ers came up with the idea of meeting at Cabbage Rose...a favorite quilt shop in Fort Worth which has several rooms for classes etc. and very nicely will let groups like us to use them.  After our "show and tell" and catching up on news, we went to eat at the Flying Fish, right across the street for the Rose.

And...last but not least, my daughter and I are going to Houston Sunday for the International Quilt Festival.  We are going by tour was a kind of last minute decision on our part...hoping that there were still some seats left to fill!  And luckily, the lady in charge had three left and was delighted to sell off two of them!!  I have been once before, but Andrea has not so it will be a full but fun day!!
