.: Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap - the start :.

So in our last post, I showed you the mini I'm working on for the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap.

Today, it's time to share the mini for the Mini Quilt Swap hosted by Kristi from Schnitzel & Boo - there's a button for it down in the left side-bar, which I think will take you to the Flickr group (or possibly to Kristi's blog).   There are lots of gorgeous things being made in this swap - if you're on instagram, search #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap and #makeaquiltmakeafriend (awesome hashtaggery going on there!).

I'm calling it "my heart is happy".  And yes I know the heart is kind of smooshy looking. 

The little squares are 2 1/2 inches.  Lots of fussy-cutting has been going on over here.  I've tried to incorporate as many things as I can, that I think my partner will like.

The 'happy' letters started life as 5 inch blocks, but I cut them down once I had the heart idea.  The fabulous pattern they are from is called 'Just My Type', and it's by Kristy from Quiet Play, and available from her very amazing Craftsy shop

At the moment, the mini measures about 20 inches square, maybe a little more.  

There's a lot of quilting coming up, between this mini and my DUDQS mini - but before then I need to finish off a few cushions that are in the works for birthday parties this weekend.

Hope you've had a great week.  'til next time.  xoxo cat
