My secret swap partner for the Scrappy Pincushion Swap likes birds.
Originally I bought this book, planning to make something cute out of it:
There are so many cute projects inside these pages. I picked one out and was excited about it. But then I went to the San Diego Quilt Show at the Convention Center this past weekend and saw this cute pattern:
I loved the idea of it and the vintage salt shaker used as the base filled with small buttons. I bought it as a kit so it came with the salt shaker and fabric to complete the project. But when I looked back at my partner’s blog and flickr photostream I decided she needed a more modern approach.
I hope she will like my interpretation!
I am still waiting for my doll quilt to arrive from the doll quilt swap. It must be coming from a far away location…I keep checking my mailbox and nothing yet. Hopefully soon! The one I sent off was received and she loved it! Yay!
