Mini Spinning Star

I participated in a mini quilt swap hosted by a fellow quilter on Instagram. This swap was huge, over 500 participants worldwide. I had 50 swappers in the group I coordinated. 

Here is the mini I made and sent to my original partner 





One of the swappers wasn't able to send a mini so I stepped in to send one to her recipient so no one was left out. 
I settled on a paperpiece pattern by Kelly Orr, you can find her patterns on Payhip now. 


I used mostly Cotton and Strel fabrics. This is a 12 1/2" block. 
I added a couple of skinny borders. 





Now 'Spinning Star' has been shipped to its new owner. I won't lie - I really wanted to keep it!

Sunprint in Progress

I was lucky to receive some of 
Sunprint Collection  by Alison Glass, ahead of its release. 
(Insert excited happy face)

I've been working on a quilt that isn't quite ready for a full reveal but I can show you a few teasers



I am using a paper piece pattern called Fractal Block and it is available on Craftsy



I made a few different color groupings of this amazing line 



I have been getting more and more excited about this project as I get further into it, and I can't wait to show you all my finished quilt.


I think I am going to call it 'Fruit Flavors' because what sticks in my head is the skittles theme 'Rainbow of Fruit Flavors' 



I ran out of background which is Andover Chambray Grey, as soon as that is in I will be able to finish up.
