I love text fabrics, so I just couldn’t resist when the Text Me Mini Quilt Swap was announced on Instagram. There was a beautiful rainbow text fabric bundle available from Sew Me a Song around that time and I decided that I’d made a 100% text fabric rainbow Dresden mini for the swap. In fact, I made two so I could keep one for myself. (Mine isn’t quilted yet, so I'll show it to you later.)
I was one text fabric short of the 16 needed for the rainbow, so I posted on IG hoping to find someone in the US to swap a couple small pieces of fabric with. I didn’t find any local takers, but Mara offered to send me some fabric all the way from Greece! Quilters are the best!
I found a free tutorial online for making a Dresden block since I hadn’t made one before. For the center circle I used turned edge machine applique.
This rainbow text mini made it's way to Monica in Florida. I also made her a pin cushion to go along with the mini.
I received this beautiful swap package from Michelle (@lemonjelliestitches) in Australia. I just love the mini and that adorable black and white thread catcher is being put to good use. :-) She included a bunch of other goodies, including a couple patterns that she created. So generous!
