a swap!

Remember this quilt? It's my swell quilt. I got it pinned and just couldn't seem to start the quilting process. Boy am I ever glad!! I had Cathy ask me if I would mind if she copied this exact pattern and if I would give her the measurements. I emailed them to her and thought that was very sweet of her. Then I started thinking maybe she would want to do a swap. And she did!!! I unpinned the quilt in probably record time!:)
I just got all this fabulous fabric in the mail from her!!!!!! I am SOOOOOOO excited!! I am ready for spring. These colors and fabrics make me smile!!:) I'm so glad that she thinks she got the better deal. But I think that I really got the better deal.:) Thank you so much Cathy!!

The crazy thing is I have another quilt top I don't know what to do with. You know me I go big. This was going to go on my guest bed that is a queen size but this is draped over my king bed and it fits. I am in the final stippling stages of my new king size(i ran out of thread) :( So I don't want another king size. If you would be interested in a swap let me know.
This is just a little closer up picture. As always I hope you have a GREAT day!!
