This year I decided to participate in a couple of online mini quilt swaps. The first one I joined was the Cotton and Steel Mini Quilt Swap. I just love the Cotton and Steel line and it sounded like loads of fun. I also fell in love with the tissue box mini pattern by Jeli Quilts. Combining the two led to this fun creation.
It was a bit of a challenge placing the correct color in the correct spot, but it all worked out well in the end. This pattern really does a nice job showcasing lots of prints all at once. The original tissue box mini is absolutely amazing using solids.
The back is just some slicing and dicing. I knew I needed to utilize the fabrics and wanted a bit more interest than just a solid back.
My first mini quilt swap was a success. We mailed the mini back in June, so I'm a bit behind on my posts. I'm trying to catch up I promise! I currently do not have a computer at home, and my frequency of blog posts has dropped dramatically. I've really missed the online community, but I hope to have a solution soon. Stay tuned!
