My Spare Change quilt is done! I’m very happy with the results. It measures 50 inches square and what I really like is the curly quilting. It was very fun and notably easier than stippling.
I just loved the fabrics I received in this swap. I especially loved the red one below on the right. Vintage, but modern feeling.
Also, I had a nutty idea to see what would happen if I used a white thread in my bobbin, with red in my needle. So, the back ended up looking like this. I like it! I have to say that using red on white fabric for the quilting did mean that I had to really do the best work that I possibly could. Every tiny error shows for sure.
So, I loved this swap. I’m thinking that in 2009, I’m going to organize my own quilt square swap, because this way really fun. A big, special thank you to Juliette from Chickpea Sewing Studio. I know you worked really hard on this and it was really fun!
