And Then I Gave it Away...

*Picture Heavy Post

I finished the quilting and binding, sent it off, and waited... 
My partner was out of town.  But she got it yesterday!
I am so excited.  She told me that she loves it.  So that is...well...fantastic!

I went with baptist fans for quilting.  I don't think I will be doing that again.  Perhaps I just need practice, but it was crazy hard and time-consuming.  I do love the affect though. 
Then my gray binding pulls it together. 
I adore my finished mini-quilt.

I worked hard to pick all of my scraps - I wanted them perfect. 







navys/darker blues


Then I had to go for a rainbow low volume in the center...cause how could I not, right?

I didn't have anything orange (and that is lime in the green).

Then I had to gather some goodies!

two fat quarters - Lotta Jansdotter and Anna Maria Horner

Then a tiny pin cushion, it is 4inches.  The pattern is by Kelly at Jeli Quilts.  I got it on Craftsy - You have to check her patterns out.

I made a small boxy pouch too.  SO much fun.  I need to make more.  I used the kelbysews tutorial. It was pretty easy, though I think that I will use a heavier interfacing next time. 

I added some nail polish too.  Cause I went slightly overboard.  But it was too much fun. 

of couse I made a card...

I enjoyed this process so much.  I LOVED making new friends and creating new things that I have never made before.  I can't wait for next year.

The Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap has been a blast.  I cannot wait to do it all again next year.

  7. What an awesome little mini! Your fans are perfect and it was the perfect quilting design for this mini. What a lucky partner you have! Oh and that pin cushion - LOVE! You did beautiful work on it, so tiny!!

  8. Katelyn, I have taken part in a few mini-quilt swaps and let me tell you, your little quilt is top of the trees excellent! Your partner must have been thrilled to pieces, to say the least. I can't get over the tiny piecing you did in your pincushion! The whole caboodle is just amazing and you are going to have people clamoring to swap with you!

  9. Wow you went above and beyond!! Beautiful quilt, bag, and pin cushion! Your swap partner was very lucky to get such nice things!
