My finished mini!!

Hey friends!!

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!!!!

Your partner hit the quit swap jackpot with you Megan! She must have been thrilled! The pattern and fabrics you used are great! How in the world do you find so many wonderful "white" fabrics? I have a difficult time finding such interesting low volume prints.
