My First Mini Quilt

It's been over 2 weeks since my last post!  What have I been up to?  I was busy making this...

My first mini quilt!  The quilt was made using a combination of linen, calicos, and Japanese yarn dyed fabric.  I was trying to for a French country look with this quilt.  As this was my first attempt at freezer paper piecing, I think I did OK.  Hmm...still need to think through how to sew the seams together!  I added some embroidery to give the quilt some dimension.  Didn't try free motion on this because it was for a swap and I was nervous about messing it up!

Here's the backing of the mini quilt.  The reason you can't seen any quilting on the back is because the backing was layered on after I completed the quilting.   I dressed up the quilt label with blanket stitches all the way around. 


So after 12 days of journey across the Pacific Ocean,  my Mini QT Quilt swap partner sent me this...

I just adore this "Home Tweet Home" mini quilt from my swap partner!  Wouldn't it be fun to live in this cheerful house?  Thank you, Ruth!
