Julie - of Me and My Stitches - started blogging back in January, and I fell in love with her beautiful minature quilt pendants as soon as I saw them. I've done paper piecing myself before, but never anything on a scale as small as what she does. The colors she uses appeal to my love of all things primitive. I admired them from afar until recently, when she shared a picture of some wool that she had purchased. The thought occured to me - if she was wanting wool, that I have a LOT of that - and maybe she would be interested in doing a swap. I bravely emailed her to present my idea and she wrote right back saying that she loved the idea! So we made the arrangements and now I am the lucky owner of this 2" pendant. She puts her work under glass and solders the edges - adding a ring for a cord or chain. Each little strip of fabric is less than 1/4" wide! Teeny, tiny!
In exchange, I went through my stash of hand dyed wool and carefully chose several pieces in the colors she wanted and mailed them off to her. I think we're both happy with the results!
