Cotton & Steel Mini Quilt Swap

You may have noticed a trend in my blogging posts lately... a lot of mini quilts, that have been sewn for various Instagram swaps that I've participated in. The latest one I completed was for the Cotton and Steel Mini Swap.

I had been excited to try the Sew On & Sew On block from the Fat Quarter Shop Snapshots Sew-Along. It seemed the perfect block to turn into a mini quilt for this swap. It was fun and easy to make, and I can't wait to make another for my own studio. 

I personalized this mini for my partner- purple fabric because it's her favorite color, a scrappy binding since she loves scrappy, and a fussy cut Tennessee to represent the state where she lives. I used matchstick quilting to quilt it all together. 

This picture was taken while I was on vacation, on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. I'm so glad I brought my good camera along for the day!

If you want to see more of the quilts created for this swap, check out the hashtag on instagram: #cottonandsteelminiquiltswap
