Today has definitely been a day of quilts.

I am pleased to say that I have managed to post out 4 of the 22 on my little (long) list! So here are some sneak peeks of Jodie's



and Est's
mini quilts - I hope they don't take too long to arrive with you and that you like them!

What is more exciting is that I received two parcels today!

Fortunately I had left a little note for the Postie because I thought I might be out when he arrived so he squeezed one through the letter box and left one with a neighbour so I don't have to do battle with the sorting office again!

The first was a lovely parcel of goodies from Kate

with this gorgeous quilt - the quilting on here is just amazing, I wish I knew how to do that - you need to click on the picture to see how intricate it is!

these lovely fabrics for me

and some fabulous novelty fabrics for the little Lockets

Daisy has already claimed the shoe ones!

Thank you so much Kate - your work is always so fantastic and I love my quilt!

My second parcel was from Gina but I had to wait very patiently for my neighbour to get home so I could collect it and then I had to scramble around to find the camera so I could rip the packages open!

I knew that Gina was going to do something in Janet Bolton's style because she knows how much I love it - but nothing prepared me for the gorgeousness of this quilt

I just love it - and of course it is Dorothy, Daisy and Fred which makes it even more special and those fabric combinations are so me!

Gina sent me some gardener's soap from Barnsdale for when I'm stinky from the allotment,

this gorgeous card

some chocolates for the children (no time to photograph them - they were devoured!)

and these lovely fabrics

Thank you so much Gina - I'm so very, very lucky!

I'll have to wait until tomorrow to do the quilt wall photo as I have run out of white-tack (my temporary adhesive until I decide how I want to arrange them all).

I worked out how to set up a flickr group for this mini-quilt swap and all the participants should have received an invitation to join it. If by any chance you haven't received it then do let me know. I also managed to work out how to put the badge for it in my sidebar so it will be there for you to look at any time!

I'm off now to do some more of Daisy's birthday present making!

wow, wow and wow. The quilting on Kate's quilt must have taken ages, it's beautiful and Gina's quilt is very clever, I love pictoral quilts.
Flickr group is a good idea, but who is going to be first to write a comment?
Well done on getting 4 parcels in the post, more ticks on your "to do" list :)

I love your quilt from Gina - it's gorgeous - just my cup of tea too - the fabrics are scrummy and the little lockets are just too cute. I definitely have mini quilt envy now :o)
