Swap Quilt complte

I actually finished this the other day but have not had time to blog it.
It is a mini quilt measuring 20 x 21 inches, that I did for an international swap and it is currently winging its way to the USA. The theme was "Spring Blooms" and I found a lovely free pattern here: Dontlooknow
and thought that i would use it for my quilt. I am not very good at making up my own patterns yet but I did change it a little by adding a couple of tulips and my quilting is just basic contour quilting following some of the lines and patterns made by the applique.











She makes the loveliest patterns and some ladies I know are lucky enough to be going to a workshop with her soon, I don't live close enough but I will be keeping my eye out for one in the future near me.
Anyway, I howe my recipient likes this little offering. My swapee is a wonderful quilter and this is not up to her standard by any means but I made it with love and I had a wonderful time doing some techniques that I have only learnt this last year, I think it looks great so hopefully she does too.
