Kate North's Little Quilt Swap

The fourth Little Quilt Swap that Kate North runs has just completed. It was the first time I had anticipated, and I was absolutely delighted with my swap.
This little quilt 'Cornflowers' was my contribution - made with my own hand dyed fabrics and just one commercial one(dark green). I fused the cornflower petals onto the pieces background, and machine quilted it. I sent it to Margeeth in The Netherlands, and her blog can be seen here.
This little quilt was made by Andrea who lives in Flintshire, and is machine appliqued with the finest buttonhole stitch, and hand quilted in the centre with machine quilting in the border. I just love trees and this one is absolutely delightful. Andrea's blog can be reached here.
If you would like to take part in Kate's next Little Quilt Swap you can find her here.
Till next time .........

The quilt is beautifull, even more so in real life as on the picture. I am very pleased it's mine now.

Lovely quilts, Val, I love those muted colours , against the dark blue and the shape of the inner border goes so well with the design, lucky Margeeth.
