Mini Quilt In A Bag Swap!

This is the mini 20" x 20" quilt that Kelly made for me, for the "Mini Quilt In A Bag Swap". How this worked, was that the participants were paired up. Each pair traded a bag of fabric and trim. And each person had to make a 20" x 20" mini quilt out of the materials sent by their partner. This was a fun swap, even for an ol' man like me. And you can see the big pay off. A super fine little quilt. Thank you Kelly! It's a great little mini.

Stopped by to say hello, I've been going back through reading some of your older post and wanted to tell you how much I loved the cabinets you've made and I really liked the peek of the mini you're making for Kelly. The one she sent you is adorable. I'm finally getting the hang of these mini's but have to say I'm afraid my first few I made for the swaps were not that great, but I've been practicing. I think Tracy is my partner for the teenytiny quilt swap, so I'm excited to receive that, since she's a pro at these tiny things. Have a great day and take care.
