Another Little Quilt Swap 5

G’day maties!

Today I decided to finish my quilt for the Swap.

I based it on a tutorial for paper pieced string quilt block. Except I made blocks much smaller, about 2 1/2 inches square instead of 12 inches.

The fabric range is “Pure” by Sweetwater, don’t you just love their fabrics! The text prints are adorable!

Anyway, I love how the brown and blue work together in this range. I’m not huge on muddy colours but I quilt like how this quilt turned out.

This is the back. Don’t know the name of this fabric but it matches so well!

Finished size is 11 1/4 x 8 3/4 inches.

Oh, it's beautiful, Jess. I'm definitely going to put it on my list! I love the colours as well; I always wanted to make a blue and brown quilt. Well done, again! How did the second day of school go?

It's beautiful! I forgot how much I love paper piecing and how perfect points come out when you do it! Lovely quilt girlfriend!

Wow that is lovely. I've only ever made one miniature pieced quilt and it didn't turn out too well so I admire you're skill in this one! It will be on my list too.
