A pile of mini quilts!

28 Dec

I think I’ve been bitten by the mini bug, and the swapping bug, and the gifting to friend’s with little ones bug. Basically I just like to make minis. Here are a bunch I made this year that haven’t hit the blog yet.

First up I made this fun one for the Saskatoon MQG mini swap, my lovely friend Tarra was the recipient.


I continued the rainbow theme on the back:



I also made this trio of doll quilts for my friend’s daughters.




For the Little Quilts Swap, based on the book by Sarah Fielke, I made this mini. The quilting is the star of the show:

And finally for the IG mini swap I made this mini using the Raspberry Kiss block tutorial by Wooden Spoon Quilts. My partner liked vintage fabrics which I didn’t have, so I bought some and pushed myself to do something I wouldn’t normally do and I simply loved the result! (Excuse the creases in the photo, it was –30 and the photos just had to get done!).

I’m sure you will see many more minis from me in 2015!

Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap

22 Nov

I am so happy to be participating in another round of the Schnitzel & Boo  Mini Quilt Swap. This is the third round and my second time participating. There are over 950 participants this time. This is a well run and very fun swap! I realized when I started planning for my quilt this go around that I didn’t blog my finished quilt from last time.

My partner last time liked jewel tons and Tula Pink fabric. I had been working on my Elizabeth Hartman Aviatrix Medallion quilt (still a work in progress), but thought it would be fun to use one of the free pattern add-ons to make just the centre block in one of the larger sizes, I used the 24” version for this pattern. I decided to use all solids on the front inspired by the fun Tula print on the back.  The binding really wins in my opinion and is the perfect pop of colour.

Here are the finished results! I’m so happy with how this turned out and sending it away was tough.
