I've been at it again! When Sarah @ 123Quilt won a scrap pack giveaway on my blog a while back, she asked for teals and greens. I've got a pile of that! And it meant that I knew she'd like it if I turned some of my Technicolor Galaxy cuttings into a mini mini to swap with her.
I went all improv on this one - sewing and slicing, sewing and slicing. It just makes me so happy. And then I quilted it with some very narrow sets of random lines. With mini minis, you can really quilt them a lot and not be at it for weeks!
I got so wrapped up in making this one that I forgot to take a finished pic. The closest thing I have is one with the mini mini all ready to hand sew the binding.
And what did she send me in return? This absolutely incredible mini. Kona, low volume, rainbow. So damned good.
Have you been making mini minis? If not, you should be. Idea to complete in a matter of hours. And perfect for those who don't like to take too many risks. You don't invest a pile of fabric or time, so you can toss it out if it doesn't work out!
Next up for swapping? Jennifer @ Little Black Cat Quilting and I are making arrangements to swap once Canada Post figures out if it's going to keep working or not!
