For the Text Me Mini Quilt Swap I decided that I’d make two versions of my swap quilt so I would have one to keep. (I shared all the details in this previous post.) In early September I mailed off the first mini to Monica in Florida. While I was away at a guild quilt retreat at the beginning of November I finally finished my own version of the mini. You saw a peek of if when I showed off the Schnitzel and Boo Mini that I received, since the Text Me mini is hanging (for the time being) in my dining room. Here it is!
I'm really pleased with the effect of using that number fabric from the center for the binding. And I just love the sudoku fabric. I wish I had yards more of it!
Thanks for visiting.
I'm linking up to Finish It Friday, TGIFF at Quilt Matters, Fabric Frenzy Friday, Link-a-Finish Friday, Needle and Thread Thursday and Adrienne's 2015 Q4 Finish Along post. See all my Q4 goals here.

Yeah for an awesome finish! I've never seen sudoku fabric before. It's a great background.
Thank you, Anja. I just love the sudoku fabric, but I only had this fat quarter of it... so I cut out the circle covered by the dresden so I could keep a bit of it in my stash.

Wow, the Sudoku fabric is really fun! Lovely color wheel progression. I know it can take a long time to make a pull that works well together.
Thanks, Yvonne. The sudoku fabric reminds me of teaching, because I always enjoyed teaching my students how to do sudoku puzzles. My son has just started to do some 4x4 and 6x6 sudoku puzzles. He's not 100% hooked yet.
Love seeing this in person last night! It's very pretty and glad it's for you!
Thanks, Susan. Loved seeing your finished alligator as well.

Oh, I love it! Especially those great fabrics -- great choices! Lucky you to get to keep it! Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!
Thank you for hosting and for visiting my blog. It's nice after a bunch of swaps to make a mini to keep! :-)
Super cute! I too like your choice of the number fabric for the center. The graphic nature of it is a nice contrast to the dresden.
Thank you, Amanda. I don't think I'll get tired of this one. ;-)

What a lovely mini Sarah! I love all those text prints together! We featured your quilt over on the FWFS blog! Thank you for stopping by and sharing! :)
Thank you. I had a great time making for the Text Me swap and I'm so glad to have made myself a copy as well. Thanks for featuring me!
Sarah, this is such a pretty mini! I have a Dresden template, but haven't used it...yet! I think you're giving me ideas!
Hint hint: I checked Etsy and they have several shops that offer the Sudoku fabric
Thanks, Kathy. The Dresden went together much easier than I expected. I generally press seams open, but there's some wiggle room by pressing all the seams to the side. Thanks for the sudoku fabric tip.
This is such a cute finish! I love the text prints combined with the rainbow.
Thanks, Cheryl. I really have a thing for text fabrics. I just couldn't resist this bundle. :-)
