For the Love of Solids Swap: It's in the mail and on it's way to you, partner. I hope you enjoy it, because I sure had a lot of fun sewing for you! Big thanks to Elizabeth of Don't Call Me Betsy and Megan of Canoe Ridge Creations for organizing. They did a fabulous job!
This was my first swap and I had a lot of fun, especially seeing all of the different ideas everyone came up with. Check out the flickr pool here. I chose to sew a mini quilt, which turned out a bit larger than I had planned. Hopefully that's OK with my partner. I forgot to take final measurements but I think it's about 30"x32". I used various Kona Solids, some Robert Kaufman Quilter's Linen, and a bit of Essex Linen, all from my friend Brenda's shop.
I brought it with me out to Montana this last week to get some glamour shots. Thanks for the photos, T! Love that late afternoon summer sun.
Here's the front:

I'm waiting to show the small item I made until my partner has received it; don't want to give everything away! This was a lot of fun and I hope my partner enjoys the items as much as I enjoyed making them.
