{Sew} Modern Monday #35

{Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations
Hey, everyone!

Looking for some modern sewing linky party fun?? Then you have come to the right place! :)
Remember when Elizabeth and I started our own Flickr swap--For the Love of Solids [a modern swap]? Well the shipping and receiving has begun and we are almost finished with Round 1! Over the last few weeks there has be some seriously awesome modern sewing popping up in the Flickr group and last week I received my package! 
My secret swap partner, Jill (madeonmainstreet on flickr), blew my expectations out of the water and I hit the swappy jackpot! Way back in the beginning (August, maybe?), Jill posted this picture in the Flickr group and asked her partner to make a decision. Tough choices, right?

My comment was "great colors! love them all, but 3 rocks!" The colors plus the modern design (curves!) was absolutely great! But ladies (and gents!) the real deal was at a whole 'nother level!

It is fabulous in so many ways!  The quilting, the colors, the curves, the back....

And if that wasn't enough, she also included this adorable pouch packed full of all sorts of goodies!

Thanks, Jill for a absolutely wonderful swap package!  I can only hope my partner will love the swappy package I sent as much as I love mine! 
Now it's time for the linky fun!  Just a reminder (and I hate to sound like a stickler) but you must include a link back to {Sew} Modern Monday in your blog post.  Also, this is a modern sewing linky party only.  Posts that fail to adhere to these easy peasy rules will mysteriously disappear. :)
Time to link up!
