Modern She Made Swap Package

 I finally finished my Rainbow Mini Quilt for the Modern She Made Swap.  To see the back story and fabric selection process, see this post.  I am really happy with how it turned out.  I hope my partner likes it.

 I decided to do hand stitching for the little circles.  I am a total embroidery novice, but forged ahead anyway.  I looked at the great tutorials on Embroidery 101 at Clover and Violet, and decided to do a variety of stitches to make it more interesting.

The stitching is far from perfect.  

 And, I kinda wish I had just stuck with straight dashed stitching like above.

 What do you think?

Although I do like the Zig Zag.

Here is the complete package for my partner.  I added a Pezzy Print charm pack, and some San Francisco treats to represent the Bay Area.  I chose Sourdough snacks and artisan sea salt dark chocolate made in San Francisco.


  1. So cute! I'm sure she will love it!

  2. Love it! Your partner will too!

  3. I like how you varied the stitching. Mmmm... treats. Lucky partner!

  4. Your stitching looks great! I'd never guess you were a novice! I like the combination of stitches too. Nicely done!

  5. LOVE this. Your partner is one lucky person.

  6. I like the varied stitching. I also recognize that feature fabric from the swap! So much fun to see it in use!

  7. Oh, I'd have no regrets, it's a lovely quilt. I love the hand sewing, so sweet. Thanks for visiting my blog!
