My CUAQ Quilt

Two weeks ago I shared what I'd sent out for the #CUAQminiquilt swap.  This swap has not been run as well as some of the others I've participated in.  I honestly wasn't sure I'd even receive something back, so I made what I felt was a nice quilt and included a few small extras with it.  Monday I received the best package ever in return.  And it was from the same person I'd sent mine to.  Everything I received was so nice.  I love the mini, and really, the extras were so awesome and just over the top.  I feel a little embarrassed that I didn't send more, but like I said, I honestly wasn't sure I'd receive anything at all.  And then to have it be my partner!  She might be getting a few more things in the mail soon.  :)

We've been having gloomy, rainy weather the last few days, so I haven't been able to get very nice pictures.  I think even my lousy pictures will show how awesome this is though.
Here is everything I received. 
Here's the mini.  Can't go wrong with some Bonnie & Camille Daysail fabric!  The background is actually white, not the weird color my photo turned out.  I adore this quilt!
Part of the extras--SIX fat quarters, a BIG spool of Aurifil, Wonder Clips, a Prairie mini charm pack, mini Olfa mat, cut little scissors in hot pink (my favorite color), and a Cut Up & Quilt ruler. {Cut Up & Quilt was the host of the swap.} This ruler will always remind me that there is good in the world, because although I didn't have faith that I would receive a swap package, I did and it was so wonderful and really generous.
More extras--walnut shells for pincushions and a pincushion pattern by one of my favorite pattern authors. 
A YARD of fun Iowa fabric!  Why can't Indiana do anything cool like this?
What a perfect package.  I am just so thankful.
