A Darling Package

So now that my Make Mine Modern swap partner, Amanda, has received their package I can reveal what I sent! 

When I first started stalking getting to know Amanda I realized quickly that what was most important to her in life is her family.  So I wanted my gift to her to be something that celebrated that.  Thus this little mini quilt which has a photo taken by her husband, and embroidered with 'Family is darling' which is what she has nicknamed her family.

I also sent her a bunch of other goodies including some handmade coasters made with Kona Natural and various vintage laces that I have been hoarding.

All in all I think she and her family really likes the quilt which is what I was hoping so I am super glad!

  2. You are a terrific swap partner! I am doing a swap for the first time now and have been skulking amongst swap posts to see what others do.

    I love the picture of your Bella solids project. The back lighting makes it look like stained glass.

  7. So how did you print the photo? Did you use any special ink to print on the fabric. What a sweet quilt.
