DD's Quilting Class

My Dear Daughter decided that she would give this whole sewing / quilting thing a try and signed up a couple of months ago for the Kid's Club at the local Quilt Shop. They meet once a month for 2 hours. They work on small projects and if they have time, they are also working on a large quilt. So far, she has made a small rag quilt and a patchwork / rag bag. I don't think she's been delighted with the projects - the fabrics were picked out for her - but she has really enjoyed the class and has fallen in love with sewing!!! Here is a pic of her quilt and bag.

What I received...

Once again, I have been slow at posting but I wanted to share the awesome packages that I received in the last two swaps that I participated in. Both of these swaps had the requirement that Amy Butler fabric must be used.
The first one was Suzee's (http://typicalandersons.blogspot.com/) Amy Butler Bag Swap. Suzee had me for a partner and this was the package that I received:

Along with a gorgeous bag, she also sent a small makeup bag and a cookbook, which I have already scoured for recipes.
Here is the inside of the bag:

I absolutely love my bag. Suzee is so talented.

The second swap was Holly's (http://mommyholly.blogspot.com/) Amy Butler Apron Swap. Tamy from http://www.3sidesofcrazy.com/ was my partner and sent me this package:

BTW, DD has decided that she needs an apron and has claimed this one. I guess she will have to start cooking.
