It’s been a fun week

Ages ago, way way back in the fall I signed up for the MQG international mini quilt swap. In my usual style I put off the project until now. The deadline for shipping is Friday. This Friday. So this week I got down to work!

The person I’m making an mini quilt for has no online footprint and was brief in the information she provided.

Likes: I love bright colors and grays, not a pastel fan. Excited to participate!

Dislikes: Pastels

Anything Else: 

Since this is quite vague I decided to make something *I* would like. I had saved a lot of pictures of rainbow stars and medallion things before settling on a round log cabin design. I saw this one on IG and went from there. I’ve never made this block but it was dead easy to piece.

Monday:

Tuesday: Epic fabric pull

I had this scrap of a Tula tiger and thought it would be perfect for a green/blue area but this is all I had, so it had to fit into ONE spot on the colour wheel. Everything else got shifted around to make this work (and I still had to piece this a bit).

Ta-da! Since the vague mystery lady also likes grey I wanted to use a value progression for the background but I was missing a dark grey.

Sometimes the wrong side of the fabric is the right side!

Still Tuesday, cut and laid out. Fun fact! Only two of these were cut from yardage.

Wednesday, mid-morning.

Because this is super awesome I want to share it with everyone! Linking up here (let’s be social), here (NTT), here (Canadian!), here and here (scraps!), and here (building blocks Tuesday).

I’m looking forward to finishing this.
