Mini Quilt Swap – the big reveal [drumroll please]

Three weeks ago, I posted pictures of the package that went off to Ireland as part of the Atlanta and Irish Modern Quilt Guilds’ mini-quilt swap.  Karen, my swap partner, lives in a small town near the Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland.  She confirmed that she received my package this week, so I can now share pictures.

The only things I knew about Karen were that she liked the color red, polka dots and birds.  No question the backing fabric would be a fussy cut of a Moda bird print I’d picked up over spring break.  But what about the quilt top?  I was inspired by a trio of mini-quilts in a recent issue of Stitch Craft Create. I had several bird fabrics in my scrap bins left over from previous projects.  So I let my creative muse out of the bottle to play…

This fussy cut bird was my inspiration.
My interpretation of the Friendship Star measures 12-1/2″ square.
Backing fabric was simply too gorgeous to cover with a traditional quilt label, so I used one of my custom printed labels attached with French knots at the corners.
