Midweek: mini quilt swap -- wow!

 Yesterday I received the mini-quilt from my MQG swap partner, Sara Hooten.     I am utterly gobsmacked.  Isn't it gorgeous?

Sara used this photo.  I took it at the entrance to the Zion-Benton Public Library in August, 2021. 

Zion is Monarch and Zinnia City. This year Benton Township (Beach Park and Winthrop Harbor) will join as the Bee Cities.  (Our high school mascot is the Zee-Bee.)

  2. Sara is very talented and lucky you to get one of her creations! Your photo is beautiful too.

  3. That is a lovely photo, and it's just amazing to me that it can be made as a little quilt design! Zinnias are such pretty flowers - I need to plant some this year. I didn't know that they attract monarch butterflies!

  4. wow a master applique artist and machine quilter...lucky you!

  5. Great photo and she did a lovely job translating it into fabric. What a nice gift. Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  6. Wow, when I clicked over from the linky, I thought it was a photo

  7. Quiltdivajulie - I love the mix of monarchs and zinnias and that quilt is stunning!
