Swaps,Updates,and More Minis

Lots to catch up on! The first picture is a gorgeous swap quilt from Denise . This is soooo me! She is truly an amazing quilter. I was lucky enough to see in person the lovely quilt she made my dad for Doll QUilt Swap 5. This is from the Quilt in a Bag Swap.The next picture is of my haul from the Road to California quilt show this past weekend. It was amazing! I had 5 hours and a wad of cash all to myself. I focused on fabric mostly. I did buy one pattern and a couple of templates.....and I was actually moved to tears by the beauty of a quilt on display. My husband and daughter laughed at that.

The next two are two little tops I just finished today using some of the new fabrics. Still need to quilt them. The 3 little minis are from Quiltin Kimmie for the Mini Swap Trip Tych round. They are so beautiful and feminine! The last picture is a beautiful little batik mini from Brenda. It has the tiniest little black quilting ! Truly beautiful! Thanks to all my swap partners!
Last update....the scrappy cabin square swap is moving very slowly. I have the squares so far from Kathy R,Shelly C,Tanaya G,Bonnie M,and Betty H. I will keep you informed of new arrivals and mail as soon as I have everyones!

Love the set of ladies! I'm into the artsy quilts right now.

Thanks for your comment on the quilt in a bag. Hope Amy likes it. You can't see all the beads, embroidery & silk embroidery in the photo's.

Wait till you see the next mini's I'm working on. They are a thank you gift someone special that you know ;-) I'll be sending them out next week so come back and take a look after he gets them!
