Look what arrived yesterday! It's my mini-swap quilt from Zoe in South Africa!!! I just love the colors, and the beautiful trellis borders. The stitching is so nice, and those button embellishments really make it pop!
She included that lovely spoon, which has ethnic beadwork made by rural women in Kwazdu Natal. I just love that sort of thing, where purchasing it helps the women support themselves.
The packaging was pretty special too -- a tube with tons of cool stamps. We actually got pretty excited about that too!
So the mini I created went to Australia, and the one living on my sewing room wall came from South Africa. Making quilting friends around the world, one swap at a time. Love it!
