I just participated in a fun mini-quilt swap sponsored by the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild.
Participants each received the name of another participant to make a small quilt for. We were to keep quiet about who we were creating for! To convey our preferences to our mystery partners, each of us created an online inspiration board using our guild Pinterest site. Here’s mine.
I drew my friend Stephanie’s name. I was excited because Stephanie is so energetic and joyful, I knew I could have fun with my design. Her inspiration board was full of colorful ideas. When I saw the fox and hedgehog designs on her board, I knew what I had to do.
I think she liked the result!
Jeanine drew my name. We didn’t know each other well before the swap, but she was able to pick up on my love of sunsets and bold saturated colors and made the perfect art quilt for me. She called it “Day’s End”. I will treasure it always!
