One done out of 4 and 5 to go..huh??

I started with 4 mini's to make for swaps. Today I finished the first one but liked it so much I added myself to the list 4-1=3 plus 1 =4 Then I started another one, different design. When I got it laid out, I fell in love with it so I added myself to the list... 4+1 =5

I have two more designs to do. I hope I don't like them as much!

I can't post the little quiltie yet, but here is a sneak peek. This is for a "Lovely little log swap", that Tracy is having, http://scraphappyquilts.blogspot.com/. My partner
had to give me a "not expected" fabric for the center of the block..the red with the white dot.

I went over the 24 inch size by 3 inches because of the border fabric that had to be fancy cut. (you can see it in the background) There was no way to cut down the size. Oh well, sometimes that happens.

I know how you feel! My sons girlfriend got me a handmade quilt hanger from her Godfather. The stipulation is I must make myself a quilt for in it. My son told her I give away everything I make!! lol
So after the retreat, I am making myself a wall hanging, doing a landscape with thread painting.
(at least that is the plan) :)

Holee, I've always had a hard time picking a favorite color, but I have always loved RW&B quilts. I'm doing something different then I usually do and that is being creative with my design. Having a theme got some creative juices flowing that I didn't know I had. I love doing these mini's they have helped me in many ways, the biggest is being more precise, you have to be on these little guys. MY first few mini's was just horrible but I think I've improved.

Wow Holee these fabrics are so pretty I guess they go back to the sender as a quilt you make. How cute.

That sounds like me at Christmas time. One for you and one for me. Nothing wrong with that...right?

Holee, Fret not! My swap quiltie will be a bit larger than it is supposed to be too. I figure larger is better than smaller.
