12 Inch Mini Quilt Swap

 
I joined Cheryll's 12" Mini Quilt Club Swap and the theme was "Welcome". Today I received my quilt from my secret partner, O'faigh of Oldbury Cottage. Isn't it gorgeous! I just love the fabrics she has used.
 
Here's a close-up of the teddies. O'faigh has painted them and then added some stitching. Aren't they so cute!
This is the mini quilt I have made for my secret partner. It's all ready to wing itself to it's new owner's home. I hope my partner enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.

My mini quilt looks lovely on it's stand sitting on my treadle machine cabinet. Don't you agree?

Thank you O'faigh for my beautiful little quilt and thank you Cheryll for organising this fun swap.
