modern she made 2 received

we interrupt this program ....

I was going to post the beginner's guide to free motion quilting review but I received my package in the modern she made swap today so I just had to share it instead :)

I received a fabulous box of goodies from Teri Emerson who is know as 'craktpot' on flickr !

Terri sent me some gorgeous extras as well as the quilt - some chocolate (what all quilter's need), some cute scissors, a fabulous finger pincushion, and some fat quarters.  Teri also included the remainder of the sew stitchy charm pack that she used in my quilt.

of course, there was a mini quilt in there as well :)

its really colourful - I love the pop of colour in the binding and its been hand quilted as well

I love the big star on the back - when I saw the photos on flickr (and of course had no idea that the quilt was for me) I really loved how Teri did the star as a label as that's what I had thought of doing

but Teri's star label is nearly the whole back of the quilt - isn't it just fabulous !

I just love the little quilt that Teri has called "tropical sparkle punch".  Its based on Elizabeth Hartman's sparkle punch quilt along but Teri has used the colour in the background so that the stars are white !

can't wait to put the little tropical sparkle on my wall - with a name like that its really making me think of the south pacific :)

thank you so much Teri - I l.o.v.e. it :)

I'll return with normal programming tomorrow !
