Swapping needlecases and a finished top!

Online group Friends in Stitching recently held a needlecase swap, I made this for Cathy


And received this one from Kez...do you reckon we were inspired by the same project?


Last Saturday night I stayed up late until I finished piecing this quilt top together
The pattern is called Ruth's Quilt by Leanne Beasley...I love all the pretty soft floral prints and the hints of blue amongst them. This quilt is for me, because sometimes we just have to spoil ourselves.

That was a very popular needlecase design - both are so lovely. Ruth's Quilt is looking wonderful - it's a great pattern. I sleep under mine every night.
