Small Quilt Exchange -- part 2

Sometimes the United States Post Office just amazes a good way.  The quilt I made for my exchange partner was mailed from Phoenix on Monday, December 5th.  I didn't want to post a picture of it in case she happened to look at my blog.  Low and behold, she received the quilt in Ohio on December 7th!!!  That's amazing.

Here's a picture of what I made my exchange partner.  It is a 26" square Carpenter's Wheel.  I loved making the quilt and will be making another one in Christmas colors this weekend (or there abouts!)

Small quilt exchange

One of the yahoo groups I belong to (smallquilttalk) hosted a one-on-one small quilt exchange. I received the quilt below from Mary M. Who lives in Sprinfield, Ohio. The quilt is 15" square and right now resides in my cubicle at work where I can gaze at it 5 days a week. Mary incorporated my favorite color into the quilt ---- purple! And she made one of my favorite blocks, Lone Star, without knowing it was one of my favorites. Thanks so much Mary!!! I love the quilt.

When Mary receives the quilt I made her, I'll post pictures of it.....don't want to spoil the surprise.
