I wanted to share this paper pieced mini quilt that I received from Juliet @tartankiwi all the way from New Zealand. She made the paperpieced dolphin pattern just for this swap, and the intricacy and detail are completely amazing. If you have a minute, check out her website at tartankiwipatterns.etsy.com She is a master at paperpiecing!
She also included in her package this large zipper pouch with another dolphin on it. I love all things of the sea and was overjoyed to see this. I was lucky enough to ride a ship into port in Costa Rica years ago in the midst of a huge pod of dolphins. Hundreds of them jumped, swam and played around us. It was breathtaking and these gifts reminded me of that experience.
I now have a postcard from New Zealand, some Kaitaia Fire Chili Pepper Spice Dark Chocolate, a stamp that says, “Handmade with Love,” and this really cool huge paperclip.
Thank you so much to Juliet for the thoughtfulness of this package. I am so grateful! Please take the chance to visit her site.
