What A Surprise!

The quilt made for me in the Summer 4 Seasons Quilt Swap arrived today... I was surprised and delighted to open it and see it was made by Margaret, for whom I had just made a quilt in the about.com swap I hosted.

Margaret has been posting regular updates for her quilt, and I had been not-so-secretly yearning for it. Wow, I didn't really think it would be coming to me as there were at least 100 participants in her swap!



The quilt is amazing, the perfect relaxing beach scene... It evokes summer so well, and is very well made. The detail she put into it is amazing... I think you can click on the picture to enlarge it. Thank you so much Margaret! I love it!

My quilt I am making is about half quilted. I hope to finish it this week and get the quilt sent out by Monday... it has a ways to travel before it reaches its new owner.

I can understand why you're so delighted with this quilt! Everything about it is perfect. The fabric used in the water is really nice. I like the quilting she's done. And the pink border fabric adds some great movement to the quilt. It yells 'sand & summer'.
Lucky you.
