My Puzzle Pieces arrived!

Awhile back I posted pictures of the puzzle pieces I made for the swap Pat Winter organized, Pieces of Friendship. I received three of my pieces in the mail this week, the fourth is coming from Pat personally and will be a bit later. This first one (above) is by Arlene White of the UK. Arlene and I are both members of CQI and when she received one of my UTS pieces we wondered if I would in turn receive one of hers. I am happy to say I did. To fully appreciate these tiny crazy quilted works of art you have to keep in mind that each puzzle piece is only four inches square. I think my favourite part of Arlene's piece is the spider - isn't it gorgeous?
This second piece of my puzzle is the work of Amber Rutz. The center features a beautifully embroidered and beaded heart. Lovely!

And here is the last of the three - another crazy quilted one from Orinda Spence.. It is done in pastels and heavily embellished. Again, I'd like to point out the total size of only four inches so you can appreciate all the tiny work on this one!
This has been a great swap thanks to Pat Winter being such a wonderful hostess - and there will be another to follow! If you are interested in taking part in the next one - and to see all the eye candy of the pieces in this one - check out the Pieces of Friendship blog.
