Quilt for Exchange

I have joined a few social networking sites over the past year to interact with other quilters.

One the Quilting Gallery site we are having an exchange of a mini quilt. The Theme was fall and the moderator sent us a fellow quilter to design and sew our quilt.

I have created this mini quilt with a center block from my embroidery machine and the borders are from the Pumpkin and Spice collection by Moda.

Each recipient does not know who her quilt maker is until she receives it. I will also receive on from someone other than the person I made mine for. I can't wait and will it when I receive it.

Of you are a quilter and are interested in The Quilting Gallery I have posted the link below.

Tote Bags for Granddaughters

I wanted to show off the tote bags I made for the girls. I couldn't believe my ears and eyes when they described a bag that was similar to what I would have carried in the 70's, with the tie dye fabrics and fancy stitching. So grandma went to work and this is what I greated. I was so happy that I came through again with something they liked. Now I have to make them quilts with Ed Harding designs in mine.
