Quilts and other projects

I have finally finished my 'Summer' Four Seasons Quilt. I have named it 'Bushfire Sun' as the colors remind me of the unusual color and haze of the sun, and the quilting reminds me of the radiant heat. This is the fourth season I have participated in. Once I receive my quilt in return, I will have to 'post' all four together.

Here is a photo from our "'Little People on the Move ' swap. Sophia is holding Birra the wombat and Pinta the Koala. They are spending July with us, and sharing many adventures. At months end, they will wing there way to the U.S.A. passports, scrapbooks and bags packed to live with 2 little people there. In return there little buddies will head our way to live with Sophia and Tessa. (nice bottom there Birra)

I LOVE how you picked Australian animals to send to the US. Very cool.

Oh I just had to Liz :)

Although I feel like I let the side down, not making them myself Jodie

Hi Jane!
I've sent you an e-mail, but I'll leave you a comment here too.
Thank you so much for the gorgeous
quilt you sent me! I love it!
It is now safe at my place, and is living its new life on the wall with my two other 4SQS quilts in my sewing room.
Take care!
May Kristin

I have just found out about this toy swap idea from Liz @ Quilted Turtle. It sounds like a fun idea. How do you get involved?
