I decided to enter the world of swapping again. This time it is mini quilts and all of the activity was on Instagram. It was a new way to be a part of a swap, but since I love Instagram it was super easy to follow along. My updates were all done on my quilting Instagram account: quilteddelights, but I want to post them here too. So this post will be my mini quilt from start to finish.
I was going to make a mini New York Beauty quilt, but I didn't enjoy trying to sew one inch curved seams. So I chucked all my paper pieces in the trash along with fabric from my first attempted block. No pictures of that mishap, but it was a relief to trash it and move on to a more feasible and enjoyable project.
I really enjoyed making the Schnibbles Hook pattern last year and wanted to see how it would look in a tiny version.
The mini quilt went together pretty quick.
All the fabric came from my batik scrap bin.
Even the background fabrics came from the scrap bin.
It will be landing in its new home this week.
Size is 11.5 x 12.5 inches.
I hope its new owner loves it as much as me.
This is the mini I received in return. It was fabulous. I really was worried about joining the swap world again, but after receiving such a lovely quilt I decided to keep swapping and joined a few more mini swaps on Instagram!
