SUMMER SUN SWAP

Summer is almost over butt it was such fun 
participating in the Summer Sun Swap on Instagram.
My secret partner was @sboots812 Suse Boots

I searched my stash to find her favorites colors
Chose this paper pieced pattern 
"Emerald Seahorse" 
If you like it you can buy it here on Craftsy

  

Found a cute Chevron Print in my stash for the backing.


Enough for Binding and Corner Tabs


It was a challenge to paper piece as some of the pieces 
were sew TINY!  The block was small as well
so I added the border to meet the swap size requirements.




The "one" extra needed to be something 
that represented me or where I live
and non-sewing related.
I added some note papers from Lotta Jansdotter,
cause I love her fabric
AND a bookmark...come on...
I could never do just one extra!
Of course, I made the card too!


And my maker was Susie Boots~and this is what I received.
An adorable turtle(s) mini with a small zipper pouch
and some Maple Syrup from New Hampshire!


Thanks to @sparklestash who was the swap mama
and kept this swap organized and moving well!


I hope you have had a great summer...
if you took a vacation
...tell me where you went!
