I decided to use the pansy design, so stitched away on this secret project.
A friend offered me some lovely red pansy fabrics for the border but when I went to make the border, both of these fabrics had 'patterns' that were too large scale and would result in some rather cut off pansy clusters...so I went to my smallish stash of pansy fabrics. My collection seemed to be in the blue, mauve colour schemes but there was one fat quarter with small pansies and the colour red was featured...so I had found my border fabric...phew!
So a day before posting was due I finished the little quilt. Cheryll, who is the organiser of this swap, had sent us all some quilt labels we could use and also printed coasters which would be sent with each mini. These coasters were personalised with our name, blog address and the theme of the swap. To my horror I saw written on the coaster that the mini should include stitched inspirational words on sewing, but it was too late for that...so Peg got a wordless mini quilt! But she was fine with that! :-)
I forgot to take a photo of the coaster and a few extras that I slipped in the parcel...the pins and tailor's thimble came from the shop in the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry...a place I loved!! This is Peg's photo. (oh and a Beatles badge from Liverpool! )
