I joined the Doll Quilt Swap for this round kind of selfishly as I hope to have a mini quilt wall one day. Of course when you join a swap you don't only receive but you also have to make. That's always fun too as I make things I probably wouldn't have tried before. Like these economy blocks.
I was so stuck on how to quilt this mini because everything is so square. I finally decided to do a cathedral window type quilting over the squares to add some round shape to the quilt.
I finished it off with some straight hand quilting on the diagonal to add some more movement. I bound it with black and white spots to match the black and white print around the centre.
It finishes at 17" square and I'm ready to send now once I gather a few extras.
I also made a start on my Feathers Quilt! This excites me because it's for us - I get to keep this one and put it on my own bed.
I'm going with jewel tones on black Chambray and I love how it's turning out so far. Somehow it's kind of tricky to get a good photo of the colours.
I'm caught up on the quilt along - done A-D blocks.
