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!
