The postman comes early.

I'm lying in bed this morning, it's 1C, freezing, my husband has just left for an early class at the gym when I hear the door opening and in he comes with a parcel for me. 
The postie must have had a very early start to his day.
I have been waiting for this envelope not knowing what day it would arrive. It all adds to the excitement of taking part in Lori's of Humble Quilts, quilt swap.
You only get the name of who to send your quilt to and not who is sending your you.

This year I got my swap quilt from Diane Quale along with some goodies. A small bag for my thread, needles and scissors, a bundle of Jo Morton fabric, a magazine section describing the patchwork shop where Diane had worked and the retreat that is now there. I will sit with a coffee and read it later.
My Swap quilt is a miniature of the full sized one Diane made for herself. It is made with Jo Morton's fabrics which is wonderful as I met Jo and her husband when they were here in Australia a few years ago and I love her fabrics.
I am absolutely thrilled with my quilt and all the goodies.
Thank you Diane, you certainly made my day.
I will add that it has finally risen to 20C and 'tis a beautiful sunny Autumn day.

and hanging up.

Thanks  Lori, for all your hard work,  as usual this has been a wonderful swap.

What a lovely swap quilt. I also admire your header quilt. I use the original in one of my lectures as an example of a wonderful scrap quilt.
