TGIFF - Mini Mini Swap

With all the hustle and bustle of life, I forgot to show you a couple of mini minis.  My quilt bee, the Do Bees, did a mini mini swap in March.  The only requirement was that it had to include green.

The Do Bees have been in existence for about 30 years (maybe more).  I joined about 10 or so years ago.  This past year, a few members left the group, and there are now just five of us.

Each of the minis were numbered, and then we each picked a number.  I received this beauty from Karel.

This is the mini mini I made -- playing around with some mini HST's.


We had so much fun, we have now planned a round robin project.  I need to come up with an 8-inch centre medallion, which is due in two weeks.  Time to panic and figure out what to make.

  1. I love swapping little projects with friends. Both of those minis are pretty cute. Thanks for sharing with TGIFF!

  2. They look lovely, I also love green in quilts but swapping can be lots of fun and inspirational. Hoping you can stop by and visit me I also have linked up to a quilted passion Whoomp this week. Cheers.

  3. Mini mini's are so fun! I love all the green, so fitting for March. :)Looking forward to seeing what your center medallion for the round robin looks like!

  4. Very cute minis! Both the one you got and the one you sent :)

  5. What a great swap! An 8" medallion center for a round robin? You've got this and I look forward to seeing that progression.

  6. Nope. Ann didn't get it. That mini mini lives on my bulletin board. And I hear you about the medallion centre. Gots to get to thinking on that one.

  7. I love the minis. I'm sure you'll come up an idea for the center.

  8. The hand sewing in your mini mini really makes it special. I love the geometric and fresh pattern you used for the one you made. I guess Ontario is a bit far to commute to the MMQG, huh?

  9. I think it's fantastic that you are in a bee that continues on through the years . I'm always sorry when the bees I am in change members every year

  10. Ooh, both of them are so pretty!

  11. I adore Dresden plate blocks so adore the quilt that Karel made. Your quilt is clean, bright and beautiful.

  12. How cute are those flowers!! I've been wanting to do a Dresden plate quilt for a long time! It's on my list, so maybe one day wayyyy down the road! Great job!

  13. Karel even sneaked in a hint of orange for you.
    Five is a small group!
