Exchange

One of my favorite blogs to visit belongs to Frieda in Scotland. She posts wonderful pictures of the surrounding countryside and estate gardens. I have to say I am extremely jealous, especially now as we are still under snow here in Michigan while snowdrops are starting to making an appearance in other parts of the northern hemisphere. She also is a gifted artist - creating wonderful quilts of all sizes using different techniques and materials.  
Recently Frieda finished a quilt and lamented the need to refresh her stock of old white buttons. I offered to send her some from my stash (I have LOTS of buttons) - the only thing I requested in exchange was a piece of her art work. 
And she very kindly agreed! Bird Inchie Quiltie arrived recently. It is 8 x 8 with 25 inchies on a lovely background of blue and white fabric. There are small beads all along the border. I love it! Thanks so much Frieda...Enjoy Jewels

  4. How wonderful Jewels! I love the background and the way Frieda put this together. I am imagining the inches are made from some of her fabric paper?? Lovely!!!!

  5. Hi Jewels,I'm here from Frieda's blog. I too have adored,swapped and followed along with Frieda for some years now. Her pieces are always such a treasure to own, and she certainly has a knack for fabric papers in addition to her quilting and photography. And now that I'm here, I'm becoming your latest follower :)
