S.T.U.D. August received

STUD Aug rec'd

Here's the STUD buildings swap mini-quilt that I received, from CASharp. It's so great! The windows are pieced into the buildings, and the window shadows are embroidered by hand. The quilting in the metallic thread really makes it look like a city on a starry night (or in the light of streetlamps).

The detail on this mini is pretty amazing. And I really love the curvy quilting. It adds so much to the mini.

STUD Aug rec'd + goodies

Here's the rest of the package. I got fabric scraps, plus two adorable. new fat quarters, a drawstring bag, and a really clever luggage tag with a sewing kit built in! Lucky me!

there is only one word to describe this quilt "WOW"

That is really neat. I hope that I can be that creative when my turn comes for something like that. Probably why I am not brave enough yet to try.

that is really cute. the stitching around the windows gives it a lot of dimension!
lucky you!
