Little Quilts Swap - My Very Own Cocktail Shakers!

Ooooooh!! Check it out, my gorgeous mini quilt was waiting here for me when we arrived home from Italy last Saturday (yes, we were in Italy! I tried posting remotely using my phone but it just wouldn't work - stay tuned for pics and stories coming soon).

I think it's so much fun that my secret (maker) partner made the same pattern for me as I made for my secret (recipient) partner!  Also, I didn't know Nedra prior to this swap, so thank you Amy and Sarah for introducing me to a new friend and fabulous quilter.

Nedra did an amazing job of piecing this mini with lovely shot cottons, as in Amy's pattern. I love the colours and the variegated quilting thread. This little number is going to hang in my sewing room where I can enjoy it daily. Thank you so much Nedra!

I've still got the Shaken, Not Stirred runner here. I'm almost finished a little extra I wanted to include for my partner and then I can pop it in the mail!

A beautiful quilt to grace your sewing studio! Synchronicity is awesome isn't it? Funny how the universe works.

I echo everyone else - beautiful colours. Can't wait to read your trip recap. Following your daily adventures on IG was great.
