swap item

Along with all of the fun classes and sewing happening at Quilt Bliss, there were also several swaps to participate in.  The first one I joined was a secret friend swap.  I’m just so delighted with what my secret friend gave to me that I had to share it with you! 

April (from April Mae Designs) made this sweet English paper piecing travel kit for me using a tutorial she found here.

And as if the travel bag was not enough, she tucked some goodies inside!  A Mickey Mouse tin (I’m a Disney fan!) with some papers, a thimble and scissors -

one completed hexie flower, and a generous fat quarter of some Briar Rose Strawberries-

Now I’ve tried English paper piecing before and got about this far:


And then there they sat.  It’s a cute little stack, but I didn’t have a project in mind for them.  Now that I have this awesome travel case I’ll be making more of these!  April, you are awesome – thank you!

Oh, and if you’re not familiar with April you should go and visit her here.  She also has a pattern shop -  I’m a long time fan of her Hello Sun block of the month project!
