now that my swappy package has safely arrived, i'm excited to be able to share it with all of you! i made this mini quilt for my secret partner, Michelle, in the For the Love of Solids swap. i just love the circle of flying geese block -- so fresh and modern. especially with the Kona solids!
i wanted to try something new with my quilting so i decided to go with a straight-line+echo quilting combo. i'm really happy with the way the quilting turned out -- i plan to use it in more of my mini quilts. my favorite part of the entire mini quilt is that bright citrus-y green binding!
this quilted mug rug rounded out the package. i've only tried improv piecing a handful of times but i'm really growing to enjoy it! shocker, i know. i chose to quilt it using 1/4" straight-line quilting and l love the texture it created in the corners!
my raw edge pez quilt is being featured over on the Modern Quilt Guild blog today! i'm super excited they wanted to share it as a part of their 100 days of quilting. thanks, ladies!
the weather here in Iowa has been *wonderful* these last couple of weeks. lots of sunshine, blue skies, and unseasonably warm weather. but hey, this girl isn't complaining! i love this time of year -- everything looks so fresh and green!
have a great weekend, everyone! don't forget, the Festival of Half Square Triangles kicks off Monday -- and the prizes are awesome!
