This month my quilt guild did a "container swap." Basically any basket or bucket style container works, as long as it is either pieced or quilted. We each got a slip of paper with a little bit about our partners on it. My partner liked polka dots, Violet Craft's fabrics, Mo Bedell's fabrics (and they're both in our guild!), and text/word fabric. I found this adorable tutorial on the list of tutes our Programs Director put together on our guild blog.
made this one first, using some Violet Craft Broken Herrringbone and
some Lizzie House Pearl Bracelet. The Herringbone was pretty much
perfect for this pattern, I love how it lined up on the corners! I
quilted this in a square straight line spiral.
Then I decided it might not be enough, so I made a teeny one with some polka dots and text fabric.
quilted this one in a kind of dogwood blossom pattern. I love the
look of this when it's done well, I will definitely practice it some
Then the two sizes just seemed weird together, so I
made a third one in between the two sizes. This is some Mo Bedell fabric
(pink) and some DS Denyse Schmidt for Joann Fabrics. I quilted two wavy
diagonal lines and then in a wavy square spiral. Kind of fun to do that
because it covers any mistakes
