A few months ago mini fever swept over IG, and caught up in the tide, I signed up for the IG mini swap with a mere 990 of my closest friends (or something like that!) It was organised by Sandy (curly_boy1) who had a small army of swap mamas to back him up. Mine was local girl Claire, aka Momma Poppins, who I happened to catch up with at the Stitch Gathering a week or so after the assignments went out. I told her I hoped she’d given me someone nice, or else I knew where to hunt her down ;o)
As it turns out, our Claire done good, and I got this fabulous mini from Becky (@sarcasticquilter):
What isn’t terribly clear in the photo above is that all that fantastic quilting has been done in rainbow variegated thread! Becky was a bit worried about this mini, because she had started another one, which I had loved, but had had to change tack when she realised she wouldn’t complete the original in time. I do hope she gets round to finishing the original some time, it really was looking fab, but this is a great alternative, and gives me a whole load of FMQ options to try and study!
The package also contained some excellent extras:
There’s a rainbow dresden mug rug (which I think I’ll put on the wall too), some M&Ms and some Lego Mixels! The chocolate is still in tact, one of the packages of Mixels, not so much ;o) I shall try and eke them out for a while anyway.
Now I just have to wait
impatiently for my partner to receive hers…
Fun! Great extras and the quilting looks amazing!
WOW! You had a great partner!
What a cool quilt. I've never seen Lego Mixels before, I'm going to have to hunt some down.
Gorgeous! You had a fabulous partner!
What a great package to receive!
Swaps are such fun to take part in, your partner certainly did you proud.
I've never heard of a mixed! That is some fantastic quilting there.
That's an interesting wee quilt you got there. Lots of extras and like everyone else, haven't heard of the Mixels, are they edible then?
great mini quilt, the quilting is superb. And the Dresden mug rug is great too. Love the little legos, they'd make great stocking fillers.
