Another swap quilt completed.

A few weeks ago I showed you the flimsy but now I can proudly show you the completed quilt.

This is the fourth quilt that I have made with blocks received in the QBSA block exchange, and I think they keep on getting better.

I have been calling this one blazing arrows swap quilt, as a reference to the style of block used, but now its complete I have renamed it BlacK KaT.  As I mentioned in a previous post this if going to be a gift for my girlfriend Deb who is an avid cat lover, and turns 50 in July.

I started collecting these blocks in September 2011, and one member (Beatrice from France) kindly sent me two identical blocks in my exchange with her, so I used this extra block to make a matching cushion.
This a true Multicultural quilt with swaps from the following ladies
Beatrice - France (2)
Encara - Spain
Teresa - Portugal
Brenda - USA
Cathy - Canada
Helen - Australia (2)
Erin - Australia
Raelene - Australia

As always when I position a quilt for photos my camera shy dog Robbie (not) jumps on it to be in the picture.  Look at him posing for the camera  - so cute.
