After I got my partner, Monda, and read her bio I did have a small panic - she is a graduate in printed and multimedia textiles after all.
So I started emailing her and found a wonderful, and funny woman , very down to earth and incredibly creative.
After Lucy posted our partners I got a few emails from people telling me how lucky I was to get Monda in the swap and you know what.....they were right.
My quilt from Monda arrived and it is breathtaking . It is just so perfectly me, Vanessa included buttons, selvedges and one of her incredible Monda birds. She obviously put a lot of thought into it. To say I love it would be an understatement.
I have taken it to work and even to the local patchwork shop to show it off. Rachel saw it last weekend when she was here. It is going to look perfect hanging on my lime green wall in the sewing room. Thank you Vanessa, I am thrilled and I think you are amazingly talented - your machine embroidery is beyond belief!
My quilt should be arriving at Vanessa's any day now and I hope she likes it half as much I like this one.
I also have both Annie's and Rachel's quilts in my possession ready to be sent to Lucy tomorrow along with mine ................... Better gets yourself some of those grown -up lady diapers Lucy!!!
