For the Love of Solids Swap - sent

 I have just returned from the post office where I sent my FLOSS items off at last! It is a good feeling to know that it is done - and now I just have to wait until the parcel is received to find out if my partner likes the items I sent her!
One of the items is a mini quilt made with HST's in a warm/cool design. I just quilted along the outside edges of the rows to make the pattern stand out.
And I made a reversible sewing machine cover which my kids said looked like Elmer the patchwork elephant :) , along with a matching fabric basket using the tutorial by Ayumi @ the Pink Penguin to go with it.

I also finished off a block for the Spotlight sewing day - we were required to make a spring themed 12 inch block so I used lots of lovely florals in a warm/cool HST design.
