I finished the mini quilt for my swap partner for the Spring Blooms swap:
I used fabrics from Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden collection and the celery solid from Amy Butler’s quilting solids collection. The backing fabric ended up matching that solid perfectly.
Our mission was to make a Spring-inspired mini quilt. I always love the spring green color when plants come back to life here in the midwest, and the little pops of color here and there as flowers begin to bloom. I like this mini so much that I might make another one for myself, considering I have a bunch more of these fabrics in my stash. I sure hope my partner likes it!

I love your mini — both front and back — and I love the celery solid! It helps make the Pop Garden fabrics pop! And it really looks like Spring! Wonderful!
Your mini is so cute! I keep saying that I’m going to make a mini one of these days. The celery solid is perfect! Nice job.
It’s really cute! I love green too! I need to make a place mat. . .
This is so cute, and definitely springy! If I were your partner I would be very happy to get this. I don’t know how people find the time for all these swaps. I would love to participate in some, but I think it would just really stress me out (which I think is pretty sad!).
That celery solid was the perfect choice! And the back is great! You’ve got one lucky spring swap partner!
Very spring-y and oh-so-cute. I love how that celery solid makes those colors pop. Lucky partner you have!
It is really beautiful. The green is so refreshing.
I’m really loving this mini quilt and your fabric choices! I saw it on flikr and had to come see if you posted a pic of the back…the greens do match perfectly! Soooo cute!
That is just adorable and those colors are perfect. Great job.
I love your mini! And I used the same backing fabric on my zig zag quilt! I’m sure your partner will love it!

I think it’s great and it has a good new home on the wall by my sewing machine, where I can see it every day. Thanks so much.
