Wonky Snowballs Mini Quilt

Darci and I decided for Christmas this year we'd swap mini quilts for each other's sewing rooms. We made a fun "rule" that we both had to use both the pumpkin colored Henna Garden and the lime green Full Moon Dot since those are two of both of our favorite prints.

I choose some of her favorite prints and really wanted to feature them and not chop them up too tiny. I like snowball blocks but I thought a wonky play on the typical snowball might be fun - so on the white in the corners of each print I just cut at different angles to make them wonky.

I love how it turned out and it looks awesome up in Darci's sewing room on the pretty grey walls.

The quilt she made me is fabulously amazing as well - she used some of my favorite aqua and green fabrics & I love it. She blogged more about it here.

We Skyped so we could both open our packages at the same time, too. So fun to have a best friend that loves sewing as much as you do.
