Anyway, I wanted to share about the mini quilt swap I participated in that was hosted by Kris of Dandelion Quilts. My partner was Darlene and we exchanged mini quilts. I must admit I had a hard time getting started, but decided on a pattern from Simplify and used my charms from the Red & Aqua swap hosted by Kelsey not too long ago. Here's my finished product ...
I figured red & aqua was safe ... a classic combo that many quilters enjoy. I really like how I quilted it with the diagonal straight lines. (With the help of my trusty FriXion pen.)
Unfortunately, it was rainy when I took these photos. I used some Half Moon Modern for the backing. And I had some yardage of the one red dot print so I used it for the binding. Loving dots and stripes for bindings.
Well, I kind of hated to have to mail this one off, but fortunately I received this awesome mini from Darlene. Love the California Girl that she used! The colors and prints are so pretty.
Love the little polka dot blocks in the sashing, too. :)
See y'all tomorrow. Promise. :-)
