Simply Mini Swap

Back in August, I think I signed up for my first ever mini quilt swap.  It's entirely managed on Instagram.  You can find it by searching #SimplyMiniSwap for the full group or #SimplyTeamConni for my pool.  For some reason I always seem to miss the sign-ups but I managed to catch this one and it seemed completely doable.  The instructions?  Make a mini quilt.  That's it.  No extras, just a mini quilt.  Well the mailing deadline is this Saturday and I'm embarrassed to say that my partners mini isn't done yet but I'm off to retreat tomorrow for four days and hoping to sew tonight so finishing up shouldn't be a problem. (Don't worry Partner!)

In the meantime I wanted to show you the quilt that I received from Mariah who you can find on Instagram at @Gr8Manythings.  She's an adventurer and nerd like me! Plus she has two seriously cute kids (not like me!!) and she made me the most amazing mini quilt!  It's made up of teeny-tiny flying geese on a grey chambray background.  I LOVE the orange and green ombre geese and the fun pink polka dot binding.  It's backed in a nice bright green polka dot too!  Plus how fun is this little green corner in the bottom?  

I'm so lucky to have received such an awesome quilt and I can't wait to finish up my partners quilt to get it in the mail ASAP!  Thanks for visiting!  Stay tuned for pictures from my first ever retreat this weekend and hopefully lots of newly completed projects.  I'm bringing a long list with me!

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.


  1. Wow, what a beautiful mini to receive! I hope you have a great time at retreat and make something your partner will love.

  2. Very cute quilt! Can't wait to see yours! Where is your retreat?

  3. What a lovely thing to receive in a swap! I too am especially fond of the ombre geese.


I love hearing from you!
