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

Then I had to gather some goodies!

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.
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.
