Spring Argyle for the swap

I'm a member of an online group
of quilters that like and make primitive quilts,
and I 'hopped' right in when the group
offered a Spring-y mini-quilt swap!
A close up view of my Spring Argyle
I had the 'draw' of Jennie, from Georgia.
She shared today that the quilt I sent has arrived and she loves it.
She also shared a picture to the Prim Group, with her new little quilt displayed on the outside deck in the sunshine-y 70 degree weather!  (I'm just a little jealous of her Spring-like temps.)
This is what I sent for Jennie:
Well, not the whole table-top set-up,
but the quilt that I named - Spring Argyle:
Spring Argyle
My supplies were Civil War reproduction fabrics cut into 2 1/2 inch squares, 
and a great, variegated purple Valdani thread (color #O86, in size 12), that I used to hand-quilt with a big-stitch.
I am so glad that she liked it;
I also liked it - so much so that I now have to make one for myself! :)
I'd also like to thank Karen (LogCabinQuilter)
for doing all the work in coordinating the exchange!


  1. It does look argyle style. Thank you for participating in the swap.

  2. Love it! Now I really need to try the big stitch. It really makes the argyle in this little quilt. What a great name!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
