Oz mini quilt swap

This year I decided to join in on a few swaps. This week the #igminioz swap is wrapping up. The swap was basically a mini quilt swap for Aussies on Instagram.

I am so thrilled with the things I received from Luelle (@strange_stitches) . She made me the most beautiful mini quilt based on an image from a Tula Pink print. The quilting is stunning! I just love looking at it!

I am a huge Star Trek fan so she made this mug rug size mini which reflects that perfectly! I am going to hang it up with some of my other mini's.

The other little extras are all favourites of mine too - mini charms of Sweetwater ranges, a spool of purple Aurifil thread and a special little pack of mini charms.

For my partner Kate (@jemimaquilts) I made a mini using a Thimble Blossom pattern called Mini Puddle Jumping. I used Bonnie and Camille fabric. I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of the mini quilt before I sent it! So I am using a screen shot of the picture Kate took.

I also made a Mini Sew Together bag using the same fabrics. The full size Sew Together bag is a pattern by Sew Demented and the mini conversion is done by Elizabeth at OPquilt.com.

And I made Kate's little guy a book cushion. The space fabric has parts that glow in the dark. The embroidery design is from Urban Threads and is such a fun design.

This has been such a fun swap!

Bye for now, Jess
