Good things come in small packages

I finished my first miniature quilt today! It’s for a Flickr swap through a group called Swap Til You Drop. Here’s the sneak preview I posted on Flickr:

There’s a photo of the final quilt at the bottom of this post – I hope she doesn’t read the blog, but I just couldn’t wait to post it! (Julie, if you’re reading this, stop now!) I’m really happy with how it turned out. The border was a pain in the patoot – it’s all freezer paper pieced, but I had to do each side in five separate sections, and they didn’t want to play nicely. I wasn’t sure how to quilt it and I didn’t want to ruin it, so I just did a simple outline in the “background” spaces. The finished quilt is 15″ square, the maximum allowed size for this swap group. I really enjoyed working small, and I can see where mini quilts can become addictive!

This quilt is leaving tomorrow for Italy, and I hope she enjoys it! I’m going to miss the little guy…
