Mini Quilt Swap Jackpot


Can you stand it?! Can you believe I got this in a swap?! Celeste from our CMQG made this A-MAH-ZING cathedral window mini quilt for me - made from the black and white color scheme I requested. She told me that working with just black and white was a challenge for her, but I tell ya - it doesn't show!  She absolutely nailed this bad boy. It is so remarkably deelish that I almost cried a little when she showed it off at our meeting. {Yes, I cry over quilts, okay?} I absolutely LOVE this and can't wait to display it it prominently next to the other cherished items in my sewing studio.

Thank you so, so much Celeste, for putting so much effort and creativity into making this!

  1. Wow, you really did hit the jackpot! What a neat design and construction job! I'm heading up the swaps and challenges for our MQG, so was interested in how this swap was organized...do you mind sharing?

  2. I'll post the info here in case anyone else wants to know! Carla - we do it two different ways: we either do a random drawing of slips of paper that have the participants name and any color or design requests at the meeting prior to when they are due {ex: we drew in August for this September swap} OR we do "bring one, get one". This means you make whatever your little heart desires, bring your creation to the monthly meeting and then we put the participants' names in a hat and draw for whose you get. This month we drew names beforehand and I got Sarah S. But next month, it's "bring one, get one" with our Autumn-inspired table runners. We have 2 gals who put our swaps together for the year and you can see all of them on our website calendar - http://www.cincinnatimodernquiltguild.com/2011/02/cmqg-2011-calendar.html . Have fun!
