Spring Blooms Mini Quilt, Done!

I decided that I wanted to have some fun and had no time for it so I committed myself to the Spring Blooms Mini-Quilt Swap. The way I reasoned it was that I would not make the time to stitch up something wonderful unless I had a reason. Just for fun? Well, just for fun I might want to continue to wash and fold the stuff that's in the laundry baskets, hello!? LOL!
Anyway, this is for a Blogger in Canada...No names shall be disclosed, we don't want to spoil the surprise! Woo-HOO!

OK, so here's what I made.First the disclaimer: New computer, same camera...even worse, I can't work the picture editor so just think of it as a "glimpse" of what could possibly, just may or might not be, a cute quilt. hahahaha! It measures 12" sq. The pattern is Spring Pillow Party by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. I just made it smaller and skipped the pillow part. It's Peach, homespun flannels for the back and binding, and wool for the applique. The top background and basket are flat cotton. It really is cute...doesn't look like much in the picture but I really tried to fix the image...I'm just not that good. Oh well, at least you get to imagine the possibilities, LOL!

PS> I don't know why the image doe not allow you to see the close up. I uploaded it three times...I just don't know if it's Blogger or the picture editor. Bummer!

I'm playing in the Mini Quilt swap, too. Wouldn't it've been a hoot if one of us had gotten the other's name?

About your picture. You might know this, but if the original of the picture is not larger than the area it needs to fit into on the blog (looks like around 400px wide), then Blogger won't make it click-to-big.

I have an opinion about hosting pictures on Blogger, but you didn't ask. ;-)
