Mini Quilt Swap.....

A couple of months ago Schnitzel and Boo ran a mini quilt swap. I have been wanting to show you what I was making, but life here has been a little hectic at the moment and it never made it on here. If you follow me over on Instagram you would have seen some of these over the last few weeks.

I had so much fun making these that I have already cut out another set to make one for me. I think I might start a wall of mini's. Ohh no not more projects.....
I love the odd green one, my favourite Granny Smiths.

I purchased the new book out by Lori Holt from Bee in my Bonnet. Its a fantastic book, full of great projects. Her house is a dream....
Her instructions are great and it came together really easy. A few days later I was quilting it and putting the binding on. It took me three days to finally decide on the binding. I always thought I would bind it in red polka-dot fabric. But after much thought I went with the green check binding and red dot fabric on the back. And it is perfect. The green is just the right balance.
And here it is all finished and ready to be posted to the UK.
Hope she likes it. I am really getting addicted to these swaps and always looking out for the next one to join. It is fun looking up details of your partner, what they like, finding their blogs of instagram profiles and then hopefully making something that they will like. Looking at all the photos going up online and then waiting for the postman to come.

Have you joined a swap before and did you enjoy it?
