Binding Day and Tilda Swap

Good morning all. Cool and crisp morning that it is. Well all the quilting is finished on the secret quilt and so now all the binding is cut....
and all pinned and ready to be sewn on....woo hoo!
One more project to quilt and then all the instruction writing begins!
I am very fortunate to belong to an online group of friends and we indulge in some very nice swaps. I wanted to share with you what I sent to my swap partner who has now received it....the very sweet Peg from Happy in Quilting. This swap was Tilda themed and so I decided to use Tilda fabrics and a little scribble of my own....so I made a bag.
and as I am addicted to those tiny hexies I made a matching needlecase with a hexie.
I asked my friend Ann if she could make a nice card using some Tilda papers which she did...
But Ann being beautiful Ann made a little gift of her own....a set of sweet little Tilda gift cards...Thank you sweet friend!
in a pretty little bag...
So I popped them with some other goodies and Peg was happy too.
Oooohhh! I do love a theme! I am really enjoying these swaps.
Ok I am off back to my binding,
Enjoy your day.
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx
