Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap

    Name: Just a little x block
Size:  19.5" by 19.5"
Fabric: Selection of prints from Bonnie and Camille, Bliss and Ruby, Cotton and Steel Hatbox lines, Kona White
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white, straight lines
Binding:   Kona white
Backing:  an awesome Sewing Studio print by Cynthia Frenette for Robert Kaufman 

I finished this little quilt last weekend.  I hung it on the barn wall in the misty rain and took a few quick pictures. This if for the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap on Instagram and after debating endlessly about what to do, I made 16 wee x blocks.  Each finishing at just a smidge under 4".  I used a variety of Cotton and Steel prints and some Bonnie and Camille prints from both Ruby and Bliss.  The Bonnie and Camille prints have been lingering far too long in the great wall of fabric so it felt good to use them.  I used Kona White as the background and binding and then did lots of straight line quilting in Aurifil 50 wt in white..  So much fun!

The backing is from my buddy Cynthia's line, Sewing Studio.  It seemed perfectly appropriate for a swap!  I also used one of Cynthia's labels on the back.  You can pop over to her Spoonflower shop to see all sorts of lovelies!

And now I just need to get it all wrapped up and off to the mail!
