Humble Quilts 2021 Doll Quilts Exchange

It has been quite a number of years since I last participated in an exchange of quilts.  This year, Lori from Humble Quilts was having another of her exchanges and the decision was made to join.  Over the past few years, Lori posts all the quilts in the exchange and I have always admired each and every one of the quilts.  So, yes, it was time for me to jump right in.

Let's start first with the quilt that I received from Carolyn H. from Red Boiling Springs, TN (near Nashville, Tennessee).  Oh so lovely!  I looked at each piece of fabric and none are in my stash.  Interesting (or sad) that we all know our fabric, eh!  Carolyn was a tad nervous about making a quilt for me.  Not to fear, Carolyn, your work is perfect!  Wish I could machine quilt as well as she!  

She included this pin cushion and some Whoopie Pies (all gone now, yumm!)  Thank you, Carolyn, I'm thrilled with my quilt and pin cushion!
Now, let's look at the quilt that I made and sent to Robin B. in Spokane, Washington.
A bit of hand piecing (using EPP method) and machine piecing made up this quilt.  Then it was hand quilted, which I enjoyed quite a lot and am thinking of doing more again on small items!  An assortment of maple sugar items and maple syrup were included in the parcel.  It is that time of year up here and the items were made from a producer just north of me in Quebec.

This exchange was much fun and I can see myself participating again.

Today, we have a mixture of rain/snow.  It has been cool for the last few weeks and many mornings have seen frost on the roof tops.  Two of my recently purchased annual plants perished and they were covered or placed in a shed for protection.  Darn.

Still, life is good.

Cherish your day, cherish your life!

By participating in Lori's quilt exchange you both received a sweet quilt and gave a wonderful mini quilt to another quilter. Looks like a win win situations. Sorry I must have sent the cold and snow your way!
