Modern She Made Swap

So, despite having a TON going on right now, I just had to sign up for my first handmade Flickr swap. I have done tons of fabric swaps, but none of the ones where you make something for your secret partner. This swap is called Modern She Made and is being run by Jolie Maxtin.

My partner's mosaic was filled with rainbows - a like minded person. I had just purchased the book Scrap Republic (which is awesome) and thought I would use that for inspiration since my partner requested a mini quilt.

Here is the fabric selection process.

Here is the arrangement I was thinking of.

Here is the test block/row.

I received a lot of positive feedback from my progress shots, so I kept going. One more row to go and then I can trim them down, and add boarders. We also need to incorporate a circular element, so like the quilt in the book, I am going to add circles. But instead of pieced and sewn in circles in white, I am going to applique some light cream colored text prints. Then in the circles I am going to do some hand quilting with rainbow colored thread - I am thinking one circle for each of the colors I have used. I like how it is turning out, hope my partner does too.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
