Baglady swaps

For those of you who have never participated in a Baglady type of swap, here's what happens. You take a gallon Ziploc bag and stuff it full of fabric. Then you send it off to another brave soul and received a Ziploc bag of your own to work on from someone else. You are allowed to a certain amount of your own fabric and its up to you to create a top for the original owner and then send it back. I love the challenge of these types of swaps, and you know what else I love? Getting back a beautiful top of my own! This top was made for me by Ellen see her blog here.
Now isn't that just gorgeous? I used fleece from my stash for backing and I'm super psyched about finally getting it quilted and the binding on it!

Mary, oh my word! What a gorgeous quilt top. I love the design and the color combo. I can see why you are so pleased.
Good for you. Care care.

Wow..that truely is a dynamic quilt.

When you use fleece for the backing, do you still put in a batting? Isn't fleece difficult to quilt, or do you have a long arm? I would love to try this.

A very pretty quilt. I think the maker did a great job and you were lucky to get it.
Looking at your blog, looks like you participate in lots of swaps.
