Nine patch swap...........

This quilt was finished in May but I have only just got around to posting it.....too much happening here........
......Last year woops the year before 2009 Christine from Once Upon a Quilt held a nine patch swap.......civil war prints........this was what started my love of the fabrics............I didn't really know what they were before this swap............Lurline and another lovely person I can't think of helped me out with the first month of blocks we had to do as I didn't have any fabrics or access to them so she sent me some to get started..................
Christine thanks once again for organising this great swap.............
this is my version once I got the swapped blocks back.............
love it on point..........and the dark chocolate fabric..............
This is a big quilt..........approx 2mx2.2m
Vicki did a great job on the quilting for this one..............
Thanks girls I love it.......
Catch you later..............

  2. Beautiful quilt and great to have the history of a quilt swap to go with it! Have you got a label on the back with all those names who sent you blocks?
    Happy stitching, Michelle.
