A Good Trade

I traded some of my work for a half share of my organic CSA. My friend, Heidi, and the owner of the CSA, asked for a quilt with a veggie theme and 'greens' for her new baby girl and 'some extras'... so this is what I worked out.


A quilt that is themed with Sweet Peas, a pillow case to match, and a knotted doll. The quilt is all cotton, backed with organic cotton sherpa (it is like the inside of a sweatshirt) and tied with coordinating embroidery threads in greens and pinks.

The knotted doll is all organic cotton, with a hardwood ring... perfect for hanging on the carseat for little hands to grab and little mouths to play with. I am really happy with the way this all turned out.

I hope she loves it! It was a great trade!

Thank you ladies! It was a blessing both ways and I just love trades like that! They make everyone feel so good. :)

Dawn I got the wood circles from a friend. I only had three, and I have used two so far. I am sure you could go on Sewing Mamas and find someone who has more.

Love Val
