Mini quilt swap.

My quilt guild did a mini quilt swap this month that was really fun.  I made this previously mentioned quilt for Colleen (a fellow Traid-ite).  She had said her sewing room was light green or blue and I had no idea what to do.  Hearing of the swap, I had originally wanted to do a red and white log cabin like the Bright Furrows quilt in Modern Log Cabin Quilting but thought I should take a different route.  I then noticed her affinity for Denyse Schmidt and stars so I came up with this star within a star block, grabbed some of her fabrics, and got to work.  Most of the points aren’t perfect and the corner stars aren’t wonky enough to look purposeful, but I had fun making it and Coleen liked it so that’s what counts.

I received a lovely little quilt from John (aka Quilt Dad).

He packaged it in this great fabric box that is very Amy Butler-esque (from World Market, I think he said).  Then not only did he include the quilt, I also received a couple charm packs!  I love the text covered fabric and will promptly be hanging this mini in my sewing room.  Thank you John!

(Sorry it’s a little blurry and don’t mind the crease :)
