Technically, yes I know, Monday is gone. But that is still the reason for this post, I made something and that's what I'm sharing. Rather than coming up with a different name because it's a different day, I'll continue with what it should be, keep it simply, you know. Life is already complicated enough, right?!
For our swap in my on-line quilting club (Crafty Gemini Quilting Club) we had to do mini quilts for the month of January. The theme for the month was "challenge". I decided I would challenge myself by using my swap partner's favorite colors only. No matter what they were or how many there were. Then I challenged myself to do a block I had never done, no traditional blocks. And lastly, I challenge myself to do bit of free motion quilting (FMQ).
Although it's a design your own mini quilt, I got it from Sew Can She, it was a tutorial none the less. Granted in the end you have the option of how to put the block together. I decide to do 4 of these blocks and put them together to make a mini quilt. Now, I meant to do each block differently (she covers that in the tutorial too). However, I had Netflix playing in the "background" while trying to catch up on Hawaii 5-0 (the new one). Wellllll, in my distraction, I simply made all the blocks the same and then sewed them all together. Sigh, well I was not going back at that point.
Notice my failure to mention the FMQ, that's because that is what is was! Urgh, it's too painful to talk about I hope she can still stand to look at it. I used to be good enough at it to write my own name. Back to the drawing board! I hope she can find some use for it. Here it is in all it's glory, lol:

This is her mini quilt to me using my favorite colors, she also made me two headbands for fun!
