mini quilts reveal

Sometime back this Sring or Summer, Momm & decided to do a mini quilt swap between ourselves. We've participated in several hosted by other people for various designs/patterns/etc., and thought hey, we know each other well enough so a plan was born.

Other than a 24"-ish size guideline, there were no rules! It was fun to send cryptic questions to suss out preferences or color choices and posting only a tiny peek at the progress without giving away the design! Our exchange was set for mid-September and now I can share what we made for our mom/daughter mini swap.

Cheers! made by me for Momm
Title: Cheers!
Fabrics from my stash
Glasses paper pieced pattern by During Quiet Play on Craftsy
Words are lyrics from Story of Tonight in Hamilton
All quilting is free motioned & done with Aurifil thread - both the words & background designs.
Inspiration: Our family enjoys toasting and celebrating both the small & big events/milestones/etc. So these clinking glasses was the perfect fit and I've bene wanting to use these lyrics for ages.

Here's what I received - this awesome retro TV block playing one of my favorites - Newsies! :)

Momm even made a couple extra fabric centers so that I can change the channel as desired! How cool is that?! Channels include: Star Wars, Tour de France, hockey & Doctor Who.

 Love it. Thanks Momm! Linking up with CrazyMomQuilts for Finish It Up Friday!


  1. That's a lovely little tale, to be quilting with your Mum! Lucky you indeed.

  2. Hey darling daughter, This might have to become an annual swap for us! I had so much fun making something knowing you would like it. I was inspired by the retro TV pattern from Lori Holt from Bee in my Bonnet. Fabric from my stash and named it "Quilters, Movies, TV & Netflix".
    Love my Cheers quilt and love that you remember we celebrate all the little things and not just special events.
