My Swap Quilt

In my previous post, I shared with you a table runner that I received from Chelos in Spain.  I had forgotten to take a photo of the wall quilt that I had sent to her in trade.  Chelos has kindly sent me a photo of it so I could post it on my blog.
I used a Jan Patek design called "Urn Pillow" from the book "Primitive Primer".  I made it into a wall quilt instead of a pillow.  This was done with needle turn applique and then machine quilted.  I would like to make one for myself later on.  Well, I would really like to make the large quilt from the book which has this flower pot design as one of the blocks.  This quilt along with many other Jan Patek designs that I would like to make.

You will find me playing  in the sewing room today.

SO glad I was able to see a picture of what you sent to your new friend in Spain. How nice of her to send you a picture. Just a adorable wall hanging . I really like the fabric you used for the background PERFECT! I also will be playing in my sewing room today ;-)

Ah, so glad you got a photo of it. It is delightful.
You must have kept Jan Patek in business over the years. : )
I do like her designs. I actually have one on my bucket list that has NO applique. *LOL*

Nice wallhanging, I don't blame you for wanting to make one for yourself. Jan Patek's patterns are delightful to look at but time intensive to finish. Hope you have fun in your sewing room today.

All I needed was to see a picture of your little quilt to know that it is from the Primitive Primer...seeing mine is up on the design wall as I finish it. LOVE your urn. Hugs
