Remember Jo .. who I have passed on the swapping addiction to? She sent me this beautiful Valentine to start our swap ..
many more to follow I am sure x She has joined in with the Sandbach challenge too... and with her 12 charm squares has made..
isn't that wonderful. It is the meeting to-night so it is going as inspiration for our ladies ... the challenge ends at the March meeting so they all have time yet to make their own stunning creations x

Sally .. my daughter lives in Australia with Blair ...HE has moaned for ......YEARS that I made quilts for everyone BUT HIM!! In 2013 I was in a swap .. can you believe that!.. and asked for log cabin blocks ... I got enough for a top .. and a back! WELL... this last week I got it all finished ... ALL HAND QUILTED xx....
