Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap

PARTNER - I'm sorry that I forgot to add my email to your card, I hope that you received this safely

This one wasn't on my FAL list, but I couldn't resist signing up for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap. It's gone in the post today, so I can't say too much about what my partner requested, but hopefully they will think that it fits their request!

In a bit of a first for me, I didn't really follow a pattern and I enjoyed the freedom of deciding what  would fit in with what my partner wanted. I'm not definitely adding a medallion quilt to my "maybe I'll make this one day" list.

The mini finishes at about 18.5“sq, and is made of a mixture of red and LV prints from my stash and from the Village Haberdashery's stall at the Square in the Fair in Highgate last month.

My partner is a fan of FMQ and I included a bit of pebbling in the centre, but stuck with my favourite wavy line quilting for the outside edges (after my first attempts had to be unpicked!) Now practice is definitely required!


Please let me know what you think, I <3 comments!
