Swap Quilt

My swap quilt arrived over the weekend, and I am just dancing on air, I am so thrilled with it. My partner was Mary. That silly girl was worried about the swap since it was a first for her. I have absolutely no idea what she was worried about, this is a beauty. If you can't tell by the photo, the piecing and quilting is just spectacular.

In addition she sent along a scissor keeper, and a rotary cutter blade (you know how we always need a spare one of them), a package of wildflower seeds, some bright and "Springy" napkins, and the most wonderful wallet. I told her I almost bought a new one this past weekend, and didn't, but wasn't sure why. I guess my intuition kicked in and I had no idea!  

I must confess, I went to move the envelope today and it seemed heavy for an empty envelope. That's when I discovered the napkins and seeds. I was so excited to see my quilt that I must have completely missed them yesterday when I opened my package.

Anyway, I am so happy with my treasures, and the quilt is not the only treasure I am talking about. I see many years of friendship brewing between Mary and me. Yeah!!! There is nothing better than a new quilting comrade!  Sharon our leader picked a great swap partner for me, and I want to thank her so much.
PS: Sharon, I know you were my friend first, and you still are, but Mary is part of the party now too!!  :-)
I love my Quilted Table Yahoo group!
