I Received My Quilt

Updated 3/2017-- photos and all links (other than to my own posts) removed as many no longer are active and it was easier than checking each one.

Back in April I was invited to participate in "Another Little Quilt Swap". I finished my little quilt (laced ribbons quilt) in May and mailed it to ____. Wednesday I got home to find I had received my quilt. Paula Dennee, otherwise known as Paula the quilter, is the maker of mine. She named it "One of These Things is Not Like the Others" and you can see it posted on her site here. I absolutely love it! She sent a note along with the quilt to explain her inspiration. She gave me permission to share it. It makes me love it even more.
I wanted to include a note about your little quilt. The first time I went to your blog was April 18. That picture stayed in my mind and this little quilt was the result.

In an email she shared this regarding the quilting which you can appreciated in the picture of the back.
O. And did you notice that I quilted it in the swirly type motion used for breast self exam? I certainly had fun making this. So glad you liked it.
Paula, I am thrilled with this quilt. Thank you so very much.

Wow....I really like this! I love the colors and the "swirl" she added.

Love the colors - black, white and red - my fave combo.

I have a question - do you do your quilting by hand or do you use a machine?

TBTAM, I do both hand and machine quilting. Depends on the size of the quilt, the quilt pattern, and the time I have to do it.
