Our first international swap!

This post has been waiting patiently to be posted! Now our partners have recieved their minis and we have recieved ours I can post this!

How exciting! As a group we have talked for a while about swapping with other Modern Quilt guilds. The lovely Tatyana emailed round a few and the first one to be set up was with the Melbourne Modern Quilt guild.

We all decided on making a mini, with a loose theme around the fabric choices, EMQG members to use UK fabrics and vice versa, this wasn't a hard and fast rule but gave us something to start with.

Once partners were allocated, contact was made and we all started beavering away on our minis.

Without any further ado, here they are!

Karen Lewis featured in a couple of minis, here is Helens gorgeous one.

This is a mini! Amazing foundation piecing from Jaqui.

Another stunning example of foundation piecing from Ann, love the Kaffe fabrics.

A mesmerising black and white quilt from Fiona.

I adore Bargello and this is a great interpretation from Janice.

Plaid but not as you know it! Soft and soothing but still plaid by Lesley.




You don't get more British than Liberty! Katy giving us an exemplar in how to use HSTs.


This is just pure and simple genius! Polaroid blocks each with a Scottish theme, the music block (middle top) is the music for Auld Lang Syne! Well done Audrey.



I don't think you could get much more Scottish than this! I love the wee Scottie dogs surrounding the monarch of the glen, beautiful work as ever Barbara.

Next up is me! Another Liberty mini, all foundation pieced.

Liberty also feathered in another quilt, you can guess whose this is by the stunning quilting, Tatyana knocks it out of the park yet again!

Robins quilt is so bright and fun, I could spend ages getting lost in this one.

Beautiful appliqué and hand quilting? Well that could be none other than the fabulous Jo Avery!
Karen Lewis features again in Janes mini, love the pairing with text fabric.
Inspired by her class in the Stitch gathering Lynsey made this gorgeous nosegay mini, all hand sewn!
Here is Sheenas mini which is inspired by the Sottish landscape and using oakshott fabrics, how very modern is this!

Love this very modern colour palette from Pauline, very chic!

You have to see the back! Loooooook it's Nessie :-)

All the goodies parcel led up and ready to go to their new homes across the seas.
