Fab Little Quilt Swap

Well my Mini for the Fab Little Quilt Swap is in the mail and on it's way to my partner :)  I am so happy with how it turned out :)  My partner really loves stars, rainbows, and lots of quilting :)  Do you think it hits the mark??


I quilted the star with mini stars and loops.  It is pretty dense quilting and I love the texture it gives the star :)


I did straight line echo quilting around the star alternating my thread color on each echo.  Ya, I had to change the thread in my machine a lot, but it was totally worth it :)  It really finishes it off, I think :)


So now I have the anticipation of seeing what comes in the mail to me :)  There are so many amazing minis in this group I can't wait.  Yippee Skippee!!!

  10. That is amazing! Totally hits the mark if you ask me! That would be a pain to have to change the thread that many times but it does look fun in the end so I agree, totally worth it. I'm sure she'll love it!
