UKminiswap ✓

I have my first finish of this quarter, it may well have been the easiest thing to get done on my list, but hey, I need one easy one off that list!!!
My UKminiswap.
I got the binding on and then had a little play about on my machine to make a label for the back.
I always forget about the clever tricks my machine has, like the alphabet, but it did make the label bit nice and easy.

The Details:

Pattern - Good Fortune Pattern by Cotton + Steel scaled down in Touchdraw and not offset.
Size - 19"x19" ish, I forgot to measure it before it went in the post!
Fabrics - Loads and loads of scraps, but also lots of Karen Lewis Textiles fabrics Charms for the coloured discs and low volume background. Binding was Remix Stripe by Ann Kelle
Quilting - echo quilted by me on my Janome 8200QC with Aurifil 2021

Now I know I did say that I wanted to keep it as I really LOVE it, but I did get it off in the post to my partner on Monday, with a few extras.
It was my first dip into a mini swaps and I don't think it will be my last, Anna Marie received it yesterday and I think she might like it,
which I am so so pleased about and I hope that she knows that it was made.......
