Back in August I joined the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild (SBAMQG) and immediately signed up for their house goods swap. I figured that it’d be a nice way to begin getting to know the members. As you may recall I made the mini low volume quilt for my swap partner. She wasn’t at the meeting that night so I’m not sure if she liked it or not. I don’t believe she’s been to last month’s meeting to find out. In the meantime I have yet to share with you what I received from my swap partner Heidi. She made me this wonderful pillow. It’s the perfect color to complement the navy sofa and recliners in our living room. I’m starting to get a cool collection of pillows to add pops of color. Of course I don’t like to have them out all the time because I hate how the dogs like to paw things. We let them have old blankets instead and save the pillows for when company comes over. ;-)
The best thing is that the back side of the pillow is pieced as well so if I ever want a change of scenery I can flip it over. Thank you Heidi!
As you can tell by the picture, both Heidi and I were very happy about our swap. Funny thing is that I carpooled with Heidi and her friend that evening so she was being a bit cagey about her swap item bag. Ha ha. I'm so glad that it was for me because it's a beaut!
