Schnitzel and Boo’s Mini Quilt Swap

I’m crazy late in sharing this post with you but to be fair I wanted to wait until my swap partner received their gift from me and I had received mine. As this was an international swap the snail mail took a bit longer. Anyway gifts were all received but then I was frantically sewing holiday clothes and the monsters were off school for the summer so it was a mad house round here.

We’re back from our holiday now and only a few more days then it’s back to school too so slowly normality is returning to Casa O’Meara. Finally I have a few minutes to share my swap photos.

Incase you haven’t heard of Schnitzel and Boo (what’s wrong with you?!) Kerry is super lovely and decided to organised an international, secret mini quilt swap.

I made a mini for the very talented Sarah from No Hats in the House. I have to admit I was a little nervous about what to make as her quilts are beautiful and I didn’t want her to be disappointed with her gift. I knew she liked monochrome so I started there.

After playing around with a few ideas I settled on this design.

Sarah had also shared that she loved international gifts so I included some English fudge and a selection of teas in London themed tins. I also made a little zip pouch with some sewing themed fabric because, well, you can never have enough zip pouches.

I was totally relieved when Sarah received her parcel and liked it.

I received my gift from Jade (@cr4zycupc4ke on IG) who completely spoilt me! She made me this brilliant mini quilt plus sent me a Hello Kitty overload, how awesome is that?!

I really enjoyed the swap and home Kerry organises another soon. In the mean time you can check out all the great mini quilts that were made in the Flickr group here.
