IG Mini Swap

It is official, I am now a swap addict! In November and December I participated in my first mini swap, the IG Mini Swap hosted by Sandy (@curly_boy1) and I have since joined in with the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap and the Rainbow Mini Swap hosted by Kate (@katebasti).

For the IG Mini Swap I was was paired up with @tracie_bailey and details that she likes teal, turquoise, orchid, and plum. By checking out her IG feed, I could tell that she liked Tula Pink so I headed out to find some.

andpins_IGMiniSwapI chose Round-n-Round by Canoe Ridge Creations for the pattern and selected two prints of Tula Pink’s Foxfield line and some coordinating solids from my stash to create this mini. I did some simple wavy quilting to finish it up.

andpins_IGMiniSwap_backdetailI had some fun with the back with some tiny improv piecing and the salvage edge from the main print.

In return I received an absolutely gorgeous mini from Erin (@ermire); one that I had been admiring as she was working on it (and secretly hoping that it was heading my way)! I was thrilled to see it arrive on my doorstep.

andpins_ermireIGMini_detailWhile it was stressful creating a mini for a stranger, I loved the process of creating it, shipping it off, and waiting for it to be delivered. The waiting (mine was shipped to Australia)!! It was a great time and I am already looking forward to creating the mini for my Schnitzel & Boo partner – I have a plan!
