For the Love of Bonnie and Camille Swap

February 13, 2015

Have I ever mentioned how much I love Instagram?  Well if I haven't the answer is a whole lot!  It is my favourite form of social media (Followed closely by Pinterest).  One of the things I really love about Instagram is the whole sewing & quilting community you can find on there.  Everyone is so open and friendly, it really is a special place on the 'net.

Anyway, I recently signed up for the 'For the Love of Bonnie and Camille Swap' (#fortheloveofbandcswap) hosted by the wonderful Sam.  I was a member of the #blissblossoms group and was lucky enough to be able to send Susan a gift :)

She mentioned she wasn't a quilter as such so I thought I needed to make her quilt, or at least a mini one!  I made a Mini 'Piece of Cake 2', adapted from the original pattern by Camille Roskelley, using Vintage Modern fabric.

I tried something new for me with some organic straight line quilting, I love the texture it gave!

I also added a few other little bits including a pin cushion, zippered pouch, Bonnie and Camille fabric (A FQ and some scraps) chocolates and some tea bags.
