A quick wee swap

Last week the lovely Krista from Poppy Print put out a call on Instagram for a couple of people in the UK to help out with a needle case swap between the London Modern Quilt Guild and the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild and I jumped at the chance! I love swaps and it's been ages since I did one :)


A quick turnaround was needed so I decided to go with EPP which I could do on the move. Some tiny little half inch hexies were born in the car whilst my son warmed up for his football match on Saturday morning.


On Saturday afternoon they came to work with me and turned into a little hexie panel.


On Sunday they were hand quilted


And today they became a little needle book


Now they've started their big journey to Canada and I can get excited about a cute little needle book coming to me :)

Happy Monday!
