Quilt In A Bag Swap Sent & Received

Here is the quilt I made for the Quilt In A Bag Swap 2. My Swap partner Sarah sent me a 5" charm pack that I had to use to create a quilt and add any fabric needed to complete the quilt. The fabrics she sent me inspired me to make a quilt of a tree. I right away though of one of my favorite poems...


I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Below is the quilt that I received from Sarah for the Quilt In A Bag Swap 2. Thank you so much Sarah, it is wonderful! This was a fun swap. I have joined Quilt In A Bag Swap 3, so keep checking back to see what I make for that swap. For this swap we had to send a FQ to our swap partner that is to be use as the centers for a log cabin quilt. I have the design all drawn out and some of the fabrics picked out. All I have to do now is get cutting. :0) It won't be your typical log cabin quilt. ;0) Now I have you wondering don't I? LOL!

I love this. If you ever create something so beautifully treeish again why not consider sharing the post with the festival of the trees? I will be back to visit again xJ
