Four Seasons Quilt Swap

This little quilt is in the final stages. It's been quilted, bound and the last few stitches of the label are being sewn down. I have to pick up a few little goodies to add to the package before it ships out, hopefully on Friday. It's been fun working on this little quilt, and believe me, I've stretched my skills to make this one! Challenges are fun, if you have a deadline, motivation, and the patience! I found out with this one, that I really could do....paper piecing small blocks (3 inch finished), machine quilt (with a new walking foot) and coordinate fabrics using scraps, found pieces in stash and two purchased pieces (the inner border and the binding). Lots of fun!

I'm about to head out the door, to pick up Dear Niece. We're having a blast keeping that little one and watching her grow and change!

Happy Quilting! (And I'm looking forward to our morning nap!!! LOL)

3 inch squares! amazing to have so many little pieces! What was the size of the smallest piece in the quilt? It looks so pretty!

Paula, I love your approach here. Tell me oh tell me I'm not seeing that lovely little log cabin isn't going away? Oh my! ;)

Anyway, I love it your attitude towards learning new things.

Ready to see more. Swap Love, *karendianne.

Love the colors of your 'little' quilt. How yummy! And can't wait to see your beautiful 3 in. paper-piecing.

I'm the happy recipient of this lovely little quilt! It is really beautiful, and I thank Paula for all the work put into this little charm. I've just received it today but will blog about it soon and post pictures. I am so pleased and can't wait to show it off to my local friends. I might have to carry it around with me for a while! -- Michele
