I was quick enough on Instagram this time to participate in a mini quilt swap hosted by Kristi from Schnitzel and Boo! It's a secret swap, you receive your partner's info with a form stating what types of fabrics she likes, her style, etc.. Then you make your partner a mini just for them, anywhere from 6" to 24". I ended up being a moderator to help out with the swap...so I made two! More on the other later...
Here is the first one I made:
From her form and instagram feed (@quiltinginthecold) I realized we had a pretty similar style. She likes traditional piecing with some modern twists and fun bright fabrics. It was nice because if I was liking it I thought I was pretty safe that she would too!
It's 24" square. Everyone also needed to create a tag for their mini and make sure to include some of the following info. I just used a fine sharpie, turned under the edges and handstitched it on.
AND the other fun part of the swap is including goodies!! My partner lives in the Netherlands so I was told that Peanut Butter cups were a must! I also made little coin purses and included some of her favorite fabrics.
It was such a fun swap!!! I received mine yesterday and I am sooo in love!!!
I have one more mini to post, I'll share the one I received AND Heather made one too.
And you may as well check it out on our Instagram feeds now anyway :) And if you aren't on Instagram just do it!!!!

Get ready for some mini goodness!!
