Once Upon A Season

I just had to showcase the lovely gifts I received from Sheila as my 'Fall' season swap. This wallhanging is just so be-fitting of the New England fall season. The center tiny piecing (those are 1" squares) is a touch to my heart as I love working with bits. The applique is just wonderfully done. I'm a beginner with applique, so this really is special to me to have such a lovely piece.

And this matching needle case - look at that lovely applique again. But there's more...

Look at this on the inside. Lots of little pockets to hold your class work needs. A little acorn pinkeep - she tucked in some needles, threader, and some fall season color floss - I love floss.

And here is the entire outside as it's opened up. I just love this design. I am going to have to embroider my name on it so it doesn't disappear at my next guild class.

Thank you Sheila - my Nova Scotia quilting swap partner
Sewingly Yours,


  1. Love that needle case. I have been wanting to make some needle cases. They are so lovely!

  2. Love the shape of the needle case. Very different. Plus, I love anything with fall leaves.

  3. The quilt is wonderful and so is the case! What beautiful applique work. You had a great swap partner.

  4. How very beautiful! Isn't this a fun swap?

  5. Sheila's work is outstanding. I've never seen anything like that needle case before. I'm glad you had such a fabulous swap partner.

  6. What a wonderful gift! I'm happy that you played with us in OASS. :)

  7. What lovely gifts you are so lucky it is such a fun swap.
