This week I have been talking about the Modern Quilt Guild Mini Swap.
My swap partner, Christine, and I have been helped along the way by our “Swap Fairy” named Kaela!! She did a marvelous job of keeping us on track and checking in to see how we were doing.
After I had finished Christine’s quilt I decided to make a little something for Kaela too. And, since I had a bunch of Split-Rectangle blocks left, I decided to play with them!!
The problem is that I couldn’t make up my mind!!
I tried several different arrangements…..
Finally, I decided to make it square…..
….and add a small border to it.
I wanted to use the same fabric that I had used in the bigger quilt, but I honestly couldn’t figure out which shelf I put it on!!!
I finally opted for a completely different color!!!!
I decided to do a “pillow case” finishing technique so that I wouldn’t have to bind it!!
It was quick and easy gift….
….to tell Kaela how much we appreciated her help!!
