January Swaps: 2018

This past January, I sent off packages for two swaps, the Libs Elliott Mini Quilt swap hosted by Lisa Taylor, and Secret Valentine Exchange of 2018 hosted by Sanae Ishida and her friend Ute.

I enjoyed taking a break from my big quilts to make these small gifts based on the specifications of someone else. Going back in time, I made a small project pouch for embroidery supplies, and a mug rug for the SVE 2018 gift, and I made a mini quilt and mug rug for the Libs Elliott swap. In both cases, I tried to mix my recipients likes with supplies I had on hand, so naturally many of the resulting items had teal in them 🙂 Hopefully my swap recipients enjoyed the gifts.

I have yet to receive my SVE 2018 gift, but I received a lovely graphic, rainbow mini quilt from Kristen. It will find a great place on the wall in my office.

Mini quilt quilting finished, but I’ve gotta pause on this to finish a couple other sewing projects with earlier deadlines. #libselliottminiswap #swapteamtattooed #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #konacotton #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltsnov2017mini #stephskardalquilts2018swaps ...

Today’s #igquiltfest, a favorite mini quilt. A repeat post/image, but here’s the story: I made this for @bountifulbobbin for the #libselliottminiswap organized by @lisataylor1982. @bountifulbobbin wanted something Libs Elliott Rebel inspired and liked black, white, grays and a pop of color. The design was created via my own code (JavaScript and d3js), different from the Rebel algorithm, but still inspired by it, pieced and walking foot quilted with straight lines. #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #konacotton #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltsnov2017mini #stephskardalquiltshome #stephskardalquilts2018swaps #stephskardalquiltsrandomize ...

Quilting in progress. I didn’t really have a plan here, I was lingering too long trying to make a decision, so I just started. #libselliottminiswap #swapteamtattooed #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #konacotton #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltsnov2017mini #stephskardalquilts2018swaps ...

It’s been a rough week at the Skardal house with sick baby Ingrid, so it was nice to finally get a little sewing in.

Mini quilt back and binding. I’m about halfway done with the binding. I normally go with voile on quilt backs, but I really love the quilted texture here on the Kona cotton. #libselliottminiswap #swapteamtattooed #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #konacotton #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltsnov2017mini #stephskardalquiltshome #stephskardalquilts2018swaps ...
