another swap done!

Monday, September 21, 2009
i finished my mini swap quilt last night for the Good Ol' Summertime Mini Quilt Swap

and just in time... they need to be in the mail today!

i did a mix of zig zags & straight strips using a honeybun... it was fun to work so small and try something new


i quilted 3/8" above each zig zag & each straight row... it isn't often that i quilt on my little machine so it was nice that these swaps gave me that opportunity!



and as always... my label on the back... i didn't get very creative here.. but i made sure there was a label!.. no more label-less quilts from now on!


i did a lot more than just this this weekend... and since i last posted..
but i can't tell you much about it all right now...

i got 25 blocks done to one quilt
47 done to another
a third started..
and so on...

as soon as i can tell you i will!!

I love that mini! I think I'll do that for one of my advent table quilts if you don't mind. Perfect use of my Figgy Pudding honey bun. Can't wait to see the result of all you other work!

It is such a beautiful quilt. Of course it is, coming from you. What a great use of a honey bun. I have not tried making something with a honey bun. My to do list from you just gets longer and longer. :-)

Love both quilts...isn't it good to get them home after they've been traveling! I bet you're just so excited for market right about now! It's probably easy to get a lot done with the adrenaline!

I saw your hushabye quilt @ San Diego California last weekend. What a great quilt. I am glad even I did not get to see you I got to see your quilt this time.
---I met you for the first time @ Long Beach quilt show.
