//Swoon Mini Quilt//


So I finished my first project!  I thought with every finish I would show the picture of what I started with at the beginning of the challenge.  So this is what I had last week.  Some squares and rectangles of some Good Folks.


This is what I have today!  Yay!  This is a mini quilt I made for a friend who really likes Anna Maria Horner.


The pattern is from Camille Roskelly's Swoon pattern, which was all over Pinterest a few weeks ago.  I really liked the pattern, but I wasn't too tempted to buy it until I saw Tracey's super sweet baby girl version.


I looked at the pattern and saw that you only needed two fat quarters, and I had just found these two fat quarters behind the baby's changing table.  How they got there...I know not.  I do have suspicions though. ;0)  I kept the quilting simple since this was such a bold block, especially with these fabric choices.  I would love to make a whole quilt out of this pattern.  However, I would definitely choose smaller prints as I think it would look better.  I couldn't get one of diamond prints to go in the right direction, and it drives me nuts that it is facing the wrong way!


For the back I used my favorite print from this line.  I just love how delicate and intricate this print is.  For the binding I used an orange and pink dot from Heather Bailey's Bijoux line.  I had a yard of this fabric that I bought a couple of years ago, and I can't tell you how many different projects it has ended up in.  It is amazing how far you can stretch a yard!


I added a little tag with my initials stamped on the bottom.

Hopefully, the new owner will love it!

Here is to many more finishes!
