Check out this mini quilt I received today from my Summertime Mini Quilt Swap partner Kathy! It’s called Hollyhocks in Summer.
She used different types of fabrics from cotton to satin and different colors of threads.
Even the binding is framed with piping, which I haven’t seen before. I also think some sections of this project were handquilted.
Other sections have this cool decorative stitching, like the border on the left side.
I can’t believe this work of art was made just for me. In her note, Kathy said she had been stalking my blog for awhile – how funny is that. It looks like a picture I could have taken in my garden. Did I mention she’s from Wisconsin? What are the odds of us being paired up!
Take a look at the back – almost as beautiful as the front. I really love the label in the center.
Thank you so much, Kathy! Be sure to go check out all the other cool mini quilts being exchanged.
