Sew Sew Modern Mini

I moved in January and traveled a lot in January and I was scared that I was going to have a time crunch on my Sew Sew Modern piece, but luckily I didn't. The partner that was selected for me, I had already had before in a previous swap so I knew her style, color preferences, and dislikes, so it was fairly easy to come up with the design of her mini!

What's crazy is that I had been partnered with her before and I also got partnered with someone I had already had as well in my Doll Quilt Swap. Crazy. I guess you know you've done lots of swaps when you get the same people again... Or maybe that's another way of saying I'm legit. Just kidding.

Anyways, I knew I wanted to do a mini for my partner and I wanted it to be fairly simple. After stalking her again I kept seeing this one block that intrigued me. It's called the Interlocking Seasons Quilt Block. It's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I mean would I make a king sized quilt out of them, probably not, just saying... for a mini it was totally doable.

I put together the block and posted it on the group to see if I was going the right way and everyone loved it so I kept going.

I then proceeded to put 1" square coordinating patchwork around the block to frame it. I could decide if I wanted to do another border of white around it so I posted that picture in the group to get some opinions.

My partner wasn't replying so I just stormed ahead and decided to bind it in white to give a happy medium, get the "white border" but also keeping the drama of the patchwork border.

I think that was the right thing to do, hopefully she likes it. Ha, I went back and checked the comments after I had finished and she wanted the white border. Too late. Sorry. I did simple straight line quilting to accentuate the angles of the block and didn't quilt the center because I didn't was to take away from the design. I think it turned out well, I'm happy with it. :) It is off in the mail to Cali as I type. I hope ya'll are having a good week! Happy Sewing!
