Serena explained that to her, summer in Australia is a hot baking sun and the beautiful sunsets and sunrises. I had requested yellow and blue for my quilt and those colours just fit in perfectly for her idea for my quilt.
I have her quilt hanging in our guest room and how perfectly it fits in with this log cabin quilt! When my niece saw the hanging, she said that the star fabric in the hanging picks up the star material in my quilt. I hadn’t noticed the similarity until she pointed it out. There is another quilt top that it will go with as well; but since the top is just a top, this works for me.
Originally, I had intended to have all my swap quilts hanging together all the time. I have now decided to hang them seasonally along with my bed quilts. This way, I will be thrilled, once again, each time they are brought out.
Being part of exchanges is very rewarding. How else could one have wall quilts from all over the world hanging up in their homes? We are the lucky ones! :o) Thank you, Margaret for arranging this year long exchange.
Have a great day!
