Swaps: Past and Present

What feels like a very long time ago, there was a mini quilt swap. It was my first swap. EVER!

It was the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap and it was awesome!

My partner liked modern quilting, grey, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner and a couple of other things. I had a little Amy Butler in my stash but not a lot else suitable. I ordered what I could find and while I waited for the fabric to come though, I doodled some ideas. It’s the most nerve-wracking thing to try and make something for someone you don’t know. Anyway, in the end this is what I put in the parcel (the last image is inaccurate. I’m afraid I had to replace the chocolate! Then forgot to take an updated picture 😳)…

And here is the mini I received…

I absolutely love it! ❤️

So that was that…

Soon after, I stumbled upon the Strawberry Swap! I tell you what, I simply couldn’t resist!! I had the best time searching for strawberry treats and I was (still am!) seeing strawberries EVERYWHERE! So here is what I sent my secret swap partner (who happened to be Lovely Lou who organised our Little Blogs Quilt Bee! I was beside myself with glee!)…

The Strawberry Swap is still ongoing so I’m patiently watching for the postman to bring me some strawberry goodness.

So that’s where that is…

And now, I’ve only gone and signed up to the IG Mini Quilt Swap! Not only is this my third swap EVER, I have also volunteered to be a Swap Mama! I have 50 swappers to look after and I really need to get a wiggle on because emails are to start going out TOMORROW!

As brief and disjointed as this may be, I keep getting distracted and drawn away by big and little people alike.

My next share will be of what I am should be making at the moment.
