More quilts coming and going

Not long after the dolphin quilt arrived in Australia, another Australian quilt arrived in my mailbox. This was my “booty” from the Miniature Booty Quilt Swap. (That’s booty as in treasure. We are not swapping les petite derrieres.)

This geometric beauty is from Vickie C. from the Northwest Territories. Look at all those sharp corners lining up perfectly! Her design was inspired by the indigenous country in which she lives. She also packed in some fabric, a hair stick and a little book with stunning photos from around Australia.

I always ask to be paired with swap partners from other countries in hopes that their quilts will reflect some of their cultures. This one really fits the bill. Thanks so much Vickie!

My outgoing mini quilt will also cross an ocean but I’m not telling which one. It is going to be really cool when it’s done. Here’s a peek:

I know- it’s an ordinary looking log cabin block. But just wait!
