Anything Goes swap

I’m participating in my first swap with the Swap Til You Drop group on Flickr. It’s a mini quilt swap – 15″ or smaller. I’ve only made one mini quilt, but I’m looking forward to working small. Here’s a look at the fabrics I’m planning to use:

Anything Goes sneak preview

I played around with possibilities for the design – a curved edge quilt, a distorted star, but when I stumbled upon my final idea, I knew it was right. I drew it up in EQ6, colored it in, and now I’m all ready to sew! I even have tomorrow off, so I can dedicate some serious time to sewing. Sorry, can’t tell you what it will look like. I’ll wait until my swap partner gets it. I can tell you that it’s foundation paper pieced (I’m using the freezer paper piecing method, of course), and the colors were inspired by a photo I found in Flickr. I searched for “Wisconsin November” because my swap partner lived in Wisconsin for a time, and it’s our November swap.
