Tranquility Mini Quilt ~ Finished

They say timing is everything. I had signed up for the New Beginnings Mini Quilt Swap over at Quilting Gallery and not too long after that I found the Modern Mini Quilt Contest over at Ellison Lane Quilts. So now that I am finished making my mini quilt for the swap, it is time to show it off here and then link it up to the contest and see how I do. Regardless of the contest results, I am quite pleased with my mini quilt and I do hope that my swap partner will like it as well.

Tranquility Mini Quilt ~ FinishedEach print square finished at 1 1/2 inches...

Tranquility Mini Quilt ~ FinishedWith the leftover blocks, I made this little mug rug, which I think will actually be my entry into the contest. There is only one entry allowed per person, so I had to choose between the mini quilt and the mug rug. I haven't completely made up my mind about this yet, but anyway one or the other will be entered!

Tranquility Mini Quilt ~ FinishedThese will both be sent off together to my swap partner, along with whatever other goodies I pick out for her. It's always so fun to imagine a stranger receiving a package full of special treats! That's why I love swaps!

Happy Stitching!
