I've been having fun with minis this week!
At the top of the list right now is the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap. When I pulled fabric for this mini, I remembered my partner had listed Kate Spain as a favorite designer, along with a few others. I started with this gorgeous floral from Sunnyside and went to town.
It was fun to piece and I love these colors!
When I went back to look at my partner's info, I discovered her favorite colors are blue, aqua and green, and she's not fond of busy florals. Oops! Back to the drawing board. I could have just changed the colors of the original mini, but I wanted to do something different. I stalked my partner's sites this time and found this Camille Roskelley block on her Pinterest boards.
Plan B is ready to quilt! I picked out a lovely quilting pattern for the center.
The other mini of the week was a completed Modern Quilt Guild challenge piece. You can read more about it here.
The largest ongoing project is a wedding ring star for my nephew. He is getting married in September, and no, this quilt will probably not be done by then. I will show the bride this sample block and a quilt mockup at the shower this weekend.
I hope you are enjoying some summer stitching today.
