4Seasons Quilt Swap - Summer!
Well - here is my quilt for the swap so far. Finished it should be 16"x16". I still have to sew around all the pieces that are fused for applique, find a cute button to be the center of the flower in the middle, then all that will be left is putting it together, quilting and binding! The hardest part (figuring out what I was going to do) is done I think. This is going to be for another person far away and I hope she will like it! The rules are to make a quilt between 16x16 and 20x20 with a summer theme... some swap partners mentioned special requests or preferences for style, color, etc. but my person didn't have any special things requested, so it was wide open. I thought this looked summery and bright - the colors aren't showing quite true in the picture, but when I finish it up hopefully I can get a more accurate photo. The green is more of an aqua green and the pink is brighter - it makes me happy to look at, so maybe I'll have to make one for myself, too - :)
