Today I rushed to the front door when I heard the postie open it, and then the thump!! My mini quilt had arrived..........as soon as I saw the sender's name on the back of the package, I whooped out loud - it was from the super talented Trudi and only yesterday I had left a comment on this flickr picture -
When I woke up this morning I thought about that quilt and wondered if it just might be on its way to me - and it was!! She has called it Sketchy NYB as all the coloured points are made from the very popular Timeless Treasures Sketch fabric, one of those clever understated prints that can be brilliant for adding texture to a quilt.
I really love how these colours sing against the background grey. Now I thought Trudi had quilted this baby on her long arm machine and I was rather chuffed to have something that had received this treatment - but she absolutely took my breath away when she told me she had done it using the normal, free machine quilting technique, it is exquisite. I took my mini along to class tonight - several of my students are doing NYB this year so they were so interested in seeing Trudi's version, and they too were in awe of her skills.
And here it is in my house, along with a lovely notebook with quilted cover and some yummy chocolate.
It's been a good day.Thanks again Trudi.
