Mini Swap Quilts

My guild did a mini quilt swap recently.  Here is what I made for my partner, who likes traditional quilts and fabrics.  I went with custom quilting since I know she's into that.

I requested something small for my swap and so my partner made me this cute little guy that will fit perfectly on my wall.  The back is as cute as the front.
We had our guild retreat over the weekend.  I went on Saturday only and took along my Cupcake 3 American Jane project.  I got one charm pack's worth, or 84 blocks, completely finished and started on the second charm pack, which I finished sewing and cutting yesterday.  These things take forever!!
We had an impromptu baby shower at the retreat for one of the girls.  Along with some purchased stuff, I made a set of burp cloths as well.  Here is a tutorial I made for them.
I've been super-productive recently.  I have quilted two quilts for clients.  

I have several of my own ready to go as well, including the ripped and re-sewn polar bear quilt.
What are you working on?

P.S.--I saw juncos in my yard yesterday.  They are winter birds here.  😩


  1. Your guild partner is very luck, that is beautiful. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.

  2. Hi Anne-Marie! Oh no to the winter birds. Waaa. I am trying to ignore the fact that Fall is fading . . . But on the up side, that is one gorgeous mini quilt!! Your guild member that received it must be oh so happy. Ooh-la-la, the quilting really just enhances the pattern you chose. And thank you for the nice close ups of your quilting - I take such inspiration from how others quilt. I'm going to PIN a few photos for the future - I know I have a churn dash quilt that's overdue because I love the way they look. ~smile~ Roseanne
