AMH Mini Quilt Swap Finish!! from Factotum of Arts

I signed up way back in January for the Anna Maria Horner Mini Quilt Swap….and of course leaving it to the last-minute, I managed to finish and post on the last day (last Saturday). I had so much fun with this quilt.

I do not often use all very loud prints in my quilts and designs, but have admired folks that can pull it together. I knew that I wanted to try something similar with this swap and experiment.

I had created this design that I thought would be perfect for this challenge.

I loved my fabric selections, which ...

Q2 Finish #3 from Riddle and Whimsy

The final mini out of my house, was for the Anna Maria Horner mini quilt swap, which I hadn’t started yet when I made my initial Q2 goals.

I blogged about the process of choosing the design I did for this mini, and the reasons why, about a month ago.

Now it’s not only finished, but living in its new home!

Lars Meets Kaffe Revised: Math Is Beautiful, 54" X 54"
So last time I posted, I shared a new quilt design based on a doodle I found in Lars's math notebook:

Lars's Doodle and My First EQ7 Design
I created the quilt design in EQ7 quilt design software using out of print Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics from 2012, and then went on a mad, worldwide hunt to find the fabrics.  However, when the quilt shop in Switzerland emailed me about payment via bank transfer and notified me of "additional customs fees which may be significant," I canceled that ...

Q2 Finish #1 from Riddle and Whimsy

Earlier this year, Ms Midge hosted another charm swap and this time for Anna Maria Horner charms! I’ve done two other of Melissa’s charm alongs, the first for Kate Spain charms, and the second with Bonnie and Camille charms. For both of those quilts, I’d cut pieces up and set them amongst a background fabric. I didn’t want to do that this time because I didn’t want to cut into the prints and how could I decide on one single colour that would show off all of the colours in AMH’s fabrics?!

Result: why ...

Kiss Kiss from Riddle and Whimsy

There are two final mini quilt swaps left on my to-do list! The one I still need to finish up is my mini for the Anna Maria Horner swap which I have on my Finish Along Goals for this quarter.¬†After these final two mini swaps are complete (the other is for the Lizzy House Mini Quilt Swap), I think I’m now over swapping. I’ve even been refraining from signing up to a few new ones I’ve seen. It’s about time I started sewing for me; and I thought that if there are any swap ideas ...
