Mini Quilt Swap

Paper Pieced Tulip Mini Quilt | Doodle Do Designs

Make a quilt, make a friend.

schniztel & boo Mini Quilt Swap, round 1

Kristi from Schnitzel and Boo started this mini quilt swap on Instagram recently, and it got BIG!  There are over 160 people participating.  That is insane!

I really hope my partner likes what I made.  They have been very quiet, so I have not been able to get any feedback to guide me as to whether they will like this quilt or not.  Now to find some little goodies that I think they will like to include in the package, and then it is off to happy mail land.

Tulip Block

Something fun for me related to this quilt - the paper pieced tulip made it to Flickr's Explore page!  It was my second time being featured, both times a paper pieced project.  It sure was exhilarating to receive so many sweet comments.  I like to think that my little quilt block maybe have turned some new people onto quilting!  Haha.
