4SQS5 from Australia

I am a very lucky girl who got a very awesome package! From Australia! For the 4 Seasons Quilt Swap I picked red or yellow and Summer. Sheila took my choices and created this gorgeous quilt just for me!

Isn't it striking? Here is a close up of the wonderful detail.

She hand stitched around the poinsettia including french knots in the center.

I just love it! As if the quilt wasn't enough, Sheila also sent me this bag. I love that it says Australia on it. And when you open it up it's huge! I love a nice big tote bag! I can think of so many uses for this bag.

And that's not all. She also made me this little cat to go on my scissors.

Thank you so much Sheila! I love everything!!

So fun that you received it, and that we both received quilts from Australia this time. Very pretty.
