I think this is a pretty fresh perspective - I love the crispness of the solid colors against the white, framed by the pretty grey border.
A few blocks made
I had sketched out this idea for a mini-quilt when I was trying to brainstorm something for this swap, I knew I'd have to come with something awesome based on the caliber of other quilters I was swapping with! :]
I'm happy with how it turned out & have it hanging in my house right now from taking pictures - and I have to say, it's going to hurt to pack this one up & mail it out.

mini quilt details
I even hand-sewed the binding to the back of the quilt, which I hardly ever do! Usually I'm in a hurry to get the binding on & actually really like the look of a machine-sewn binding. This one called for a little extra special treatment, though.
Can't wait to see which quilt I end up with!
