Mini quilt swap #2

Well for our second quilt swap I was paired up with the other co-leader of the pressure right!!!  Yikes!!  She is one of my dearest friends too.  This round was called "Anything Goes".  Well I look through all of her favorites and came up with  the pattern from Patchworkpottery and made the "Crane Star" pattern.
 I also made her a paper pieced Hummer Named Zippy.  This was so much fun to make!  All the embroidery was sewn onto this quilt while we were up in the mountains...just lovely!!
 This is the quilt Pattiann made for is titled "Garden Memories" in honor of our last 2 Irish Setters....Kelsey and Darby.  We had to put Kelsey down in April of 2013 and Darby down this past April.  My poor husband when I opened this package....I was sobbing at the beauty and love that was all wrapped up in this beauty!  Isn't it something else?  I love it so much!!!

  1. Your two quilts are just beautiful! Lucky swap partner. Those puppy dogs are just sooo perfect. She has captured them brilliantly. I can only imagine how overwhelmed you must have felt after you saw the quilt for the first time.
