Jo, (sparkly green knickers) in Melbourne, Australia!
Jo emailed me yesterday to say she received it and she loves it. That is always so nice to hear!

I usually try to make something for my partner that I think they will like. Jo said she likes nature, green and natural tones.....and I noticed in the inspiration mosaic, that she created for the swap, several quilts that included linen and/or trees. I like to use this information for a jumping off point and then work intuitively, creating as if I'm making it for myself. It's much more fun and I think my work turns out much better this way.
I had several fabric strips leftover when I finished the quilt so I used them to make a matching zip pouch (with this tutorial).
And, of course, I felt compelled to fill it with green goodies!
So, now I'm anxiously checking my mailbox everyday, hoping to see a DQS8 package for me in there ;)
