A Tilda Swap

Dawn at Kitty Rose Cottage recently organised a 
Favourite Tilda Fat Quarter Swap. We each sent her a fat quarter 
of our favourite Tilda fabric which Dawn then forwarded 
to a mystery partner who then made a swap gift using that fat quarter.
 We could also add extra fabric to what we were making. 
This is the fabric my partner Kerry sent. Isn't it gorgeous! 
It was from the Bumblebee range. 
Straight away I knew I wanted to make her Gail Pan's 
"Happily Ever After Sewing Bag" from her book 
Patchwork Loves Embroidery.
Instead of using Gail's stitchery, I did Kerry's initial using 
the "Stitcher's Alphabet" by Michelle Ridgeway.
I remembered I had these cute little heart charms so added one.
Kerry loved her bag!
This was my fat quarter that was sent to Julie (it was not a direct swap). 
It is from the Tilda Old Rose range. 
The colour is more like this than the photos below.
I received a lovely project pouch from Julie. 
It has a plastic front so you can easily see what's inside.

With the scraps, Julie made me a luggage tag. 
This is perfect as Noel and I are heading to Scotland later in the year!

You made a gorgeous bag for Kerry out of her FQ. Love the embroidered initial and added charm.
Kerry made you perfect gifts which you can take along on your travels.
