My mini quilt swap mate is " Lyn Crump" from Australia, received her mini quilt yesterday and she loved it. This was part of an exchange through APQS forum. We email our preferences to a co-ordinator Shannon.....then Shannon gave us the details as whom we were to make the quilt for. Named the quilt "Falling Leaves" as the fabric has fall tones of deep purple and green. The quilt is 26" square used QD wool batting.... thread was so fine top and bottom line bobbin. I designed the mini so it would look like a whole cloth on the backside. This was a little bit of a challenge but lots of fun. My feathers are not as plumb as they should be, I was a little up tight not as relaxed when quilting, as I was caring for my motherwhile working on this mini.
The quilt was wet in these photos, makes the quilting shows up a little better.
Made a quilted card added a thread cutter for Lyn for small gift. Had a mini class at the quilt expo on making quilted cards. Nice way to use up scraps.
