Unicorn Swap

Another Super Fun swap I took part in was the Happy Unicorn Swap.  My partner was Jennifer Sabri, and she was pretty open to what ever I wanted to make so I went with bright and bold -- to match a fabric that I bought on a whim while in Asheville earlier this year.

With some brights from my stash I turned it into this fun mini
My mini serves double duty as a pillow cover. I wasn't real sure how she would want to use it because I think it might end up being great for her baby girl. 
I went with a loose feather swirly design on this one and after I stopped fighting with my machine I really like the way that it turned out. 

In doing this project I have come to learn that not all spray bastes are equal and the one that I got as a sample does not agree with my machine -- I think perhaps it's to sticky because the thread just wouldn't catch to make a stitch. 

I threw in some unicorn goodies, sweets and we also were asked to include something that is native to our area and send to our partner -- this was harder than I thought it was going to be. In this digital age you can pretty much get most things readily but I went with a North Carolina classic -- 
Andy Griffith. 
There was a little mix up with her package being dleivered but I a very glad that it was safe and that she loves all the items that I included. As a bonus surprise I got my Unicorn package today as well and I love it -- check out this awesome hexi goodness that Pam sent my way. 
I'm working slowly on several other great projects right now so stay tuned and Happy quilting everyone.

  1. I really like it and all the bright colors. You were very generous with all the other goodies you included. I'm sure she really appreciates it all.
