I got a new quilt, I got a new quilt.....

Here it is my new quilt gifted to me by Reene from Nellies's Niceties.

And I couldn't me more happy about it. The posti arrived on Saturday morning at my doorstep and 5 min later I sent Reene a big thank you mail as I was and am so happy with my 'Colour Maze' quilt. It is obvious that Renee put in a lot of thought and research around my likes and dislikes and this has paid off a 100 %. The quilt has solids, bags of colour and straight line quilting, in short everything I love. And to top it she made me a little pincusion in a fantstic long shape that is so much more practical than the ones I usually make.

Great job Reene and thank you again.
I also would like to take the opportunity to thank the BRIT SWAP organisers, individual Mamas and of course the UeberMama. These things can be hit and miss but you Ladies ensured that participants had every opportunity to make a quilt for their secret partner that works and is loved. You made us do a mosaic with our favourite handmade things and fill us in a form with more information. That was really well organised.

Thank you.
P.S. What about a fancy zipper pouch swap next ?  I volunteer to help organising it.


  1. Gorgeous quilt. I love those colours too. Zipper pouch swap, hmmmm, I am sure I could give it a go.

  2. oh that quilt is lovely! You are very lucky :) I was thinking it would be great to swap a cushion cover or household item in a future swap but a zipper pouch swap sounds great too!

  3. Lovely quilt. Isn't the swap wonderful! I'm up for more! Jxo

  4. That is a lovely quilt, lucky you!

  5. this is lovely, very vibrant!

  6. What a colourful quilt - just perfect to keep you cheery. I would very much like to be a part of any swap, count me in!!
