Jumping to the middle of the story now, the tote wouldn't work and I needed a new plan. (I will give you the tote story another day, promise.) I decided, instead, to make a mini quilt. I hatched a new plan and a mini was designed and executed. I think the execution is better shown in photos so here you have it's progression.
My swap partner produces some fantastic work so I hope she likes the quirky item I wanted to send her way. Personally, I love it and have a hard time sending it away. :)
I want to update you on two other items, also. First, I decided to scrap the entry for QuiltCon this year. It was a pipe dream, starting it so late, anyway. The timing just wasn't with me and I don't want to stress myself so much that I create a poor looking quilt. I decided next year, the idea will still be a good one.
Second, I did make a second block for my monthly star bee. The recipient likes it and that makes me happy.
What have you been up to?
