It’s all mine!

I have spent the past couple of days, making something, just for me.

It’s not often that I have the time to make things for myself, so making myself this mini quilt to hang on a wall in my sewing room, was great!

The weather was sooo gloomy and it’s just started to rain, so this photo isn’t the greatest. My little lady loves to come out and assist in my photo shoots.

While making this wall hanging, I got to thinking about a swap. Not for right now, but for the new year. I understand how crazy busy we all are now and will be for the next month.

I was thinking we could assign swap partners and make mini-quilts / wall hangings for a partner. Perhaps make up an inspiration collage in Flickr or on blogs.

Would you be interested in this type of swap? Leave me a comment on this post so I can gauge interest. Plus any thoughts / ideas for the swap.


  1. This is so gorgeous. And so is your daughter! Beautiful work. Love the colours!!

  2. A little inspiration from Kellie Wulfsonh of Don't Look Now fame....I'm in the middle of making her one from the Whip Up Mini Quilts. Love yours as I think the material selection makes all the difference.

    Oh .... did you just answer your own question...the swap could be to make a mini quilt with our partners blog name on it for their wall?????

  3. I love your wall hanging! Can mine be exactly the same ;) I like the idea of having our blog names on it.

  4. That is so beautiful and unique. I would love to join a swap but I am flat out at the moment just coping with all the work I have.

  5. So lovely ... and so you... and your Daughter is so lovely too....

  6. What a lovely quilt and a very cute daughter holding it so well.

    Your swap idea sounds great put me down

  7. this is adorable!! your little lady is sweet!!))

    and i would love to swap) even if I'm a beginner at quilting :-p

    and I love your new header for the blog! it's great idea!!!

  8. Hi! Greetings from Finland! I love it!!!! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world! :)

  9. What a lovely gift for yourself!

  10. That is beautiful. You did a fantastic job quilting it too! Your daughter is so cute!

  11. Oh how cute! I love all those bright colors.

  12. I love your wallhanging! Beautiful.

  13. That mini-quilt is lovely and looks great as your blog header.

  14. Oh my, your wall quilt is so incredibly pretty. <> I love the bright colors, pretty prints, and appliqued flowers and insects. Fantastic job!

  15. This mini-quilt is incredible! I'm not surprised you made it into your blog banner, it's beautiful.
    I'm so jealous. Partly because you have it hanging in your house, and I want it hanging in mine, but partly because you made this and I'm way off being able to produce quilting of this standard.
    I love the butterflies... and the flowers... and the little ladybird is so cute! Did you appliqué them? It's just perfect.
    I'm printing this out and putting it on my pinboard as inspiration to sew more and quilt better!
