String Quilts Your Way from Humble Quilts

I was the lucky teacher for the North Cities Quilt Guild in Yorba Linda, CA. I love that Zoom makes it possible to connect with other quilters regardless of distance.

Tuesday we did String Quilts Your Way workshop. 
The quilt above came from that workshop and is published in American Patchwork and Quilting

The Final Swap Quilts! On The Slow Boat! from Humble Quilts

 Back in June I posted this on the Humble Quilts facebook group inquiring on the last 3 quilts taking the "slow boat" on their journey to their swap partner. LOL 
 All was silent. On July 6 I posted this one. The little quilts must be on an even smaller and slower boat to their destination! LOL

And then TADA! 
 The first quilt arrived from Japan! Cynthia made this for Robin. 
Then boom, the next quilt arrived! This was destined for Sicily, Italy to Rina from Mary Ellen. 

Then bada bing! The 3rd and final quilt of the swap arrived from ...
