My First Mini Swap

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!
