Our holiday meetup and mini swap at Ricado’s last night was so much fun! We played a bunch of games, and Trinia donated fat eighth bundles in our guild colors for prizes. We also exchanged our two-color challenge minis, and everyone who participated in the swap went home with something beautiful.
Trinia was a real taskmaster on this challenge; these were the requirements for our minis:
- Between 12″ and 18″ square
- Minimum of 25 pieces
- Quilting cotton
- Natural fiber batting
- Backing with label (name, date, location, title [if applicable])
- Colors: Kona snow + 2 colors (can have different values of each color)
Here are the minis (usually photographed with the recipients)!
Val made an adorable red and blue Norway.
Megan made a fabulous black and white feathers mini.
Jackie made a beautifully quilted sunset mini.
Ronnie made a super modern improv mini. The title is perfect: Which Way Is Up?
Mai made a terribly cute aqua and coral flying geese mini.
Trinia made a craaaaaazy intricate zig zaggy mini with over 400 tiny pieces! It was inspired by Gently Down The Stream.
Leah made a lovely Christmassey Swoon.
Norine made a wonderful blue and grey mini.
Finally, Nancy missed the swap signup but brought a mini top to show — she made a gorgeous carpenter’s star that we all loved.
Thanks to everyone who celebrated the end of the year with us! 2015 is going to be even more fun! 🙂
