quilting swap



Today I am going to share with you a wonderful swap package I receive from Lynda , my swap partner assigned for this Very Cherry Swap.  Tina (emilyannkloset) started the swap over on instagram with hashtag #verycherryswap.

I am amira_littlemushroomcap in Instagram by the way.

On a lovely Monday holiday, I receive this bundle of package full of cherry goodness! I love all of them, especially the lip balm (I am a sucker for lip balm) and the pouch! oh and the cute socks! Truely, I love all of them, can’t really pick a favourite. Look at that cute pom pom ric rac on the pillow case. Just perfect.

I am very thankful to have such a lovely partner, Lynda and the efforts she puts in all the things she made here. It was all very lovely indeed.

In return, this is the package I sent her. I love this swap as this swap embraces that we have each other as swap partners.

All packed in a cherry bag I had saved from my last trip cherry picking last year. Another fun thing about this swap is that I squeal everytime I see anything cherry, knowing that I could include it in the swap package. So this bag was definitely one squeal!

Here are the things in the package:

The main one was the mini quilt made from simple granny squares in Lori Holts’ fabric.

A pin cushion made with fussy cut 1/2 inch hexies and super cute cherry tag I found when I was back in Malaysia :

A sweet charm with a cherry on top! (printables available for free here). So easy to customize your gift with a certain theme with free printables!

Another customized with the same printable.

She loves lady bug, so I bought lady bug button and stuck them onto the printable too. Made a diary so cherry with the same printable.

I print and cut out cupcake wrappers with the free printable available here.

Deco with printables

Made simple stickers from them too.

Made the mini quilt label with a bit of embroidery. Can you spot some cherries in the free motion quilting I did on this quilt?

The very cherry pouch, embelished with a cute lady bug zipper I found at the recent quilt & craft show.

The open wide pouch has a cherry tag to cover the end of the zipper. Fussy cut.

Overall, I really enjoyed making all of them and have enjoyed the surprise I got from the lovely package Lynda sent me.
