IgMiniSwap ~ Sent and Recived

I seem to find myself a lot of Instagram these days. 

My lovely friends lured me into the IgMiniSwap and oh I was so excited I did.

Piecing piecing piecing #igminiswap #kaysgroupMy partner in Australia was Kay of Shocking Hocking was the lovely I got to stalk as I made a quilt for her.  She loves improv and reds.  

This so stretches my comfort all good ways.

I was glad to attempt new ideas and designs for me.

Okay I was also very very scared!

But I finally sat myself down and accomplished improv scrappy curves

Made me some freehand curves #igminiswap  #kaysgroup

Adding different strips and I was so glad to work on this. I even added different fabrics in the binding fabric.

Yes and some hangers...
Last minute addition of hangers. #igminiswap #kaysgroup

Yeah I can share the #igminiswap for #kaysgroup I made for @shocking_hocking has been received.  So beyond my comfort but improv curves were achieved.

Quilt Stats:

Name: Leading Lady
Size: approx. 16.5 x 16.5"
Fabrics:  Reds and low volume.  
Pattern:  None - Improv with curves
Quilting: Machine quilted on my 1008 Bernina and a dabble of handstitching
Started : November 2014
Completed: November 2014

I added a line of handquilting although it's not the "proper" technique.  I may have bought a craftsy class to help me with this.

Overall, I was so happy to send this away with my name on it.  Which I of course forgot my label...bahahaha.


Now the beauty of a swap is that I get something in return.

I had a partner that floored me with his quilting awesomeness.

I totally wish this were bigger for a lap quilt!  Is that bad :)
