Here are the ATC's I sent out for the challenge on Unlimited textiles group. this group has just been opened up by Alis and Jan, and so the first swap was a get to know you swap. I have been working in purples and yellows of late and so I used my scraps up. I used the method described in the artists muse, chapter 3. I put my wonder web down and then added the pieces, and didn't move them once I had layed it down. I added some tulle over it then, and cut back after stitching. I hand stitched in yellow then. These went out to Sandy and Lynda, and I have one to spare if anyone would like to leave a comment I will draw a winner after i get back from my holiday on the 1st of Sept.
A few weeks ago I found this blog http://michelleward.typepad.com/how_cool_is_that/2007/07/incoming.html
and so I thought when I was sending out my ATC's in envelopes inspired by this challenge. Here are the ones I did:
This was the quilty I made for Claire. This was part of the same swap. I have never made a quilty before but they are a lovely size to work on. I added Prarie points, another thing I have never done before and beaded bits. I think I will do this with the other big sample I have as it will be another edge treatment for C+G.
And this was Claire's envelope. i think this made things a bit more special, at least I hope!

I just came here from Random Blethers and I love your work! Purple of course caught my eye since it's my favorite color and the little quiltie is just beautiful. Also the envelope! Who wouldn't love to get something that beautiful in the mail!
