Another Little Finish


I love it when I complete things ahead of schedule! This doesn't have to be in the mail until July, but getting it done makes me feel very virtuous. Neener-neener-neener.
Actually, getting it done feels like a Victory, since I have a tendency to be the dreamer-of and starter-of things type of personality. Show me a thing, I will brainstorm the heck out of it! (In fact, I am at this very moment scheming a way to start a niche market e-retailer that I cannot talk about, Shhhh!)
This is a little quilt for the ALQS: Another Little Quilt Swap (link on the side over there --->) and my swappee, who I am not sure reads my blog... Hmm... I wonder if the organizer (the fantastic Kate) is planning a spectacular Reveal thingy.
I have been watching the progress on the main site of ALQS, and all the participator sites and wasn't sure this was going to come together as well as the other ones already posted did. But I am happy with its very cheerful self! And now that I have made this in the Doll Quilt size, with 2-inch finished 4-patches and little setting triangles, I may have to make this for myself! Very fun to do! And now that I have a little cheater graph for cutting the half-square and quarter-square setting triangles, not at all hard to plan.
Next Step- wrap and pack and throw in a little goody the recipient will love and ship it off! (Having a blog to look at has been a great way to figure out what someone likes.)
Kate- It will be in the mail Monday.

Your little quilt turned out so bright and cheerful. Someone is a lucky duck.

I think the yellow makes this little quilt so beautiful and bright.

I love the bright colors on this one, and the fact that it looks like a full-sized quilt ... only smaller! I'm almost done with mine, too ... just the dreaded binding to finish up.

Very cute! See, now you have a finish and I haven't had one in awhile. So I am living vicariously through you. I will try to post pics later this week. I really haven't stitched anything worth showing that I haven't already shown. Hang in there with me!

Oooo....I like it a lot! I thought it was a lap quilt until you told us it was a mini. Really nice!

I love this quilt .... I posted mine off yesterday so hope the recipient will enjoy it! I had heaps of fun making it.....I will definately participate again as it pushed me to finish something - deadlines are great and this one was achievable....sometimes I set myself ridiculous ones that I have no way of meeting....LOL
