Marvelous Mini Quilts

I got talked into another mini quilt swap. Ok, there was no talking, only a sharing of a link, but close enough! It's all Charlie's fault and he accepts full blame. :) I'm passing on the bug to all of you. I hope you catch it with us! 

It's called Another Little Quilt Swap 4 (ALQS4) and all you have to do is make a mini quilt. The fun part is, when deadlines are met, you get to see all the mini quilts that the participants have made and you get to choose your top 10-12 favourites and the chances are really good that you will get one of them! So it is still sort of a blind swap because you don't "really" know which one you will get, but you will know you will love it because you picked it out! :) Doesn't that sound fun? Well, that's why I signed up. 

Now, the commitment isn't really even final until you send Kate the photo of your completed quilt. If you don't send her one when the deadline is reached, you don't get one in return. Sounds pretty fair to me since you don't have to worry about flakers! Pshew!!

Soooo..I've drawn up my design and have begun a little stitching for it. I'm really excited because I've never really stitched much before but I am finding I really like it! Just a bit of cotton thread, a needle, some fabric and a really cute design....leaves nothing but a smile. :) Oh, and a few finger pokes...but nevermind those!

Do you see the pinwheels? Big surprise huh? Ha!

Want a chance at my mini quilt? Then you gotta head over to ALQS4 and sign up by sending Kate an email declaring your interest. Then you have to make your own! :) 

I will post more photos as it gets closer to being finished. Yay!

Much Love!!!

  3. That's awesome! How big does the quilt need to be? Those little birdies are ADORABLE!

    I've not done a 'swap' before, but it's something I'm definitely interested in :)
