Thank you Sil XXX

Earlier this year I committed to the Fab Little Quilt Swap on Flickr and today my parcel arrived.  Sent all the way from Brazil by Silvana, known as Silort on Flickr.  Sil is an incredible talented piecer and the quilt she made for me is a stunning example of her work.


What you don't realise until you see it in person is that the rainbow stripes in the triangle are pieced using tiny little 1/4" strips. This mini is really stunning in person - very summery, happy and beautifully pieced and quilted.  Sil is a superstar.  


And she also made me this supercute watermelon pouch which my twin girls are desperate to get their hands on (sorry twins, this one's for me).  And she sent me some lovely Brazilian chocolates as well as a roll-up of Kaffe Fassett fabrics - anyone who knows me knows I adore KF fabrics and don't have any where near enough.  Thank you Sil, you have made my day although I do feel a little bit sick from eating all the chocolates in one go instead of having breakfast which you, as a doctor, would not condone, I am sure. 


And thank you so much to the organisers of this wonderful swap - Carol mamacjt and Susan Flossie Blossoms especially, as the angel mama and my own mama - I had real fun with this one and you spoiled me with the person you chose to make for me.

  8. Wow, that mini quilt is rightfully named, it is fabulous. Having only started paper piecing a few weeks ago, I can only look on in envy at those tiny pieced strips! You will have to hide that pouch from your girls I think :)
