CQI Swap and Happy Easter!

I joined in a swap at Crazy Quilting International. We were to create a CQ piece, and then upload pics to the swap site. Then, each participant has the opportunity to vote for their favourite 3 items. Once the voting is complete, the swap boss assigns the swap partners.
Here's what I made:
 Assorted fabrics from my stash, some vintage

some black lace and heart trim

more lace and trim

vintage red rick-rack and some dimensional fancy picot tatted flowers in red with bead centers. They don't show up very well against the fabrics.

 red bead ropes and decorative embroidery with Wildflowers varigated thread

the underside
 sized to my eyeglass case
 it fits! The cover is lined with red cotton.
3.5"x 7.75"

I sure hope the other participants like my CQ'd eyeglass case cover. Well, if not, I'd be happy to keep it for myself.

Wishing everyone a  Happy Easter Weekend. I hope you have the opportunity to share chocolate with family and friends.

Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz

  8. wow this is great, you have been so busy, just been checking your blog out and you put me to shame.

  9. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments!
    Hi Sandy, and thanks for your comment. I don't think there are winners in the sense of the nicest project, or best design. I guess I wasn't clear in explaining that everyone participating votes for their three choices of what they'd like to receive in the swap. We're all winners, then! Hugs

  10. I can only echo the comments of everyone else Susan. I just love the black and red combination of laces and trims. What a good idea it was to turn it into a spectacle case. A very useful swap item.

  11. Wow, such a lovely pouch!! Did you tat long picots into chains or rings and roll them up for the flowers?

  12. Hi Singtatter--I sent you an email. Hugs

  13. a very happy Easter to you too!!

  14. Hi Suz - I just love your spectacle case - such a lot of work in it too. I'm sure the other participants will love it as well!

  15. hi suz!
    wonderful picture with flowers, I love that.

  16. Thanks Val & Max! It was fun to do. Hugs

  17. Suz - it was wonderful to chat with you today and thanks for redirecting me to your blog. Just luv the blazing reds and beautiful work you have been creating.

    And the picture window looking out on the lake is more beautiful and serene than I remember it when I last visited with you.

    I'll be sure to visit your blog often and will be in touch soon.

    Luv Barb
