Memories of QuiltCon 2.0
When my guild announced a mini quilt swap recently, I didn't think twice before joining in! I have a wall in my new sewing area that's begging for mini quilts and I loved the idea of decorating with a quilt made just for me by another Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild member. I made a quilt for Matt, a long time member of the guild, and his questionnaire gave me the freedom to do whatever I wanted (just not in pink flowery fabric). I thought this was the perfect chance to try another "Memories of QuiltCon" style HST quilt with larger finished squares. Here are the two side by side:
My original Memories of QuiltCon quilt had HSTs that finished at 1" and the squares in the one I made for Matt finished at 1.5".
Here are a couple shots of me and my quilt in our very short-lived time together!
Most people didn't swap with the person who was making a quilt for them, but I was lucky enough to be paired up with Matt. He made me this beautiful quilt full of all my favourites: triangles, brightly-coloured solid fabrics, rainbows, and geometric shapes!
