More MInis

More minis! I am lovin the simplicity of this pattern! Made these with some scraps. I am thinking a large throw like the one on the right,but with a variety of colors. What do you think? The little guy on the left will get red binding.

Announcing the Challenge in a Bag Mini Quilt Swap!

I will be hosting a mini quilt swap. Here are the details. Signups begin today and will end next Saturday,November 1st. To sign up ,just leave a comment here on the blog. On Sunday,Nov. 2nd,I will send you the email address of your partner. This is NOT a secret swap,so the two of you will exchange mailing info. Then the fun begins:

1. Assemble in a bag/baggie ingredients to make a mini quilt. (Let's say anything under 20" finished quilt size is acceptable)This can be fat quarters,charm squares,strips,and/or embellishments of any kind. Think outside the box....beads,silk flowers,felt,floss,etc. Don't send batting-your partner can provide that! Send them to your partner by November 30th.
2. Once you receive your baggie of loot,create a mini quilt for your partner. You must use at least a bit of every item in the may also add items from your stash.
3. Mail the finished top (quilted and bound )to your partner by the end of January. This should give us plenty of extra time around the holidays.
4. Include a label on the back with pertinent info. Please email me when you have sent and rec'd your quilt. Post pictures!

Hope you play!

Another Little Doll Quilt Swap

Here it is all finished! My partner for this swap seems to love the same kind of fabrics I do. I just love how this one turned out. It is almost ready to send out!


I think this will be for my Doll Quilt Swap 5 partner.....she has lots of quilts with squares in her favorites and lots of quilts with 30's prints. After quilting,it will get red binding.
