Winter: Mini-Quilt Swaps
At our December NYC Metro Modern Quilters Guild meeting members will be anonymously swapping Winter themed mini-quilts.
On top of a Michael Miller Cotton Couture white solid I've appliqued some metallic winter print cottons as well as including pieces of hand-painted and tie-dyed fabrics that I made years ago when I was studying textiles alongside some gorgeous metallic silver/gold silk chiffon.
12" x 12" quilted and bound mini-quilt
Winter themed NOT Holiday
abstract or realistic, embellished or not
signed and dated on back - I did that after taking these photos and I've added my label!
must be gift-wrapped - done, but you'll have to take my word for it 😉
due 3 December - yep, I'm ready
I echo matchstick quilted around the raw edge applique
and finished the mini-quilt with a 1/4" single fold binding using my own tute - available here.
It's so exciting
- I wonder who'll be taking my mini-quilt home with them on the 3rd and
- I wonder who's mini-quilt I'll pick from the grab bag?
Not long to wait now.
Update at 7 December 2016
Just look at the fab Mini-Quilts made by everyone taking part in the swap.
And when the swag bag swap was done only two members did a direct swap with each other - guess who?!!!
And I'm in love with the mini-quilt Jean's made, It's called 'The December Night Sky' and is hanging proudly on my kitchen wall 😆
