Mini Quilt Swap With Jules Knoblock

Here, finally, is the unveiling of the little bird quilt that I made for a swap with Julie Knoblock. Many moons ago, Jules wrote a post about being inspired by one of my mini quilts. Since I admired her work, I suggested a swap — Jules enthusiastically agreed. I think that was about seven or eight months ago. Yes, I am the world's slowest swapper.

Jules was far more timely, and quickly sent this treehouse-themed beauty. I love it! The colors and motifs really fit our life: dog, flowers, mushrooms, and that awesome treehouse. Now, if I could just get it framed, I will hang it on this wall of our bedroom.

Julie and I were both inspired by Amy and her wonderful small quilts. A double congratulations to Amy on her book and her baby!

More details of my quilt over at my Fabric & Felt set at Flickr.

Three cheers! They're both wonderful and inspiring.

And, I'm further behind on a swap than that. I should picked a knitting pattern that didn't drive me NUTS. Oh well; I should finish before the weather gets back to cool and appropriate for the item.

I'm back to look at your mini-quilt and to see if anyone asked my question (lazy me) but they haven't so I'll have to. I'm curious about the upper half. Is that flowery fabric that you've embroidered over? It's a lovely thing!

Crazy lovely colors. Love the detail, composition and COLORS. Beautiful. Personally, I avoid swaps like the plague because I have a fear of in-completion. There is nothing like a deadline to send me into paralysis.
