2017 Humble Quilts Swap

I finished up my little quilt tonight to send out to its recipient.  I had this one in mind for the last two swaps, but never finished more than 6 diamonds.  I decided to go ahead and use the hexies this year--what good are they just sitting in my folder anyway?  I thought about a different layout, but decided on this one.  The pink in the patches is actually darker, but I couldn't get the colors correct with the photo.

I love the backing fabric. The picture doesn't do it justice.

2017 Humble Quits Swap

This one is heading out of the country next week! I hope the recipient likes it, it is definitely a humble quilt with many goofs along with wiggles in the quilting... uffda.  I am a bit rusty with the freemotion.

Updated: I followed up with some outdoor shots the following day, which didn't seem to help overall with getting the colors right:

Update 2: This is the adorable quilt I received:


  1. I love it! Didn't know you were doing the SWAP too. I worked on my Doll SWAP quilt this week while the granddaughters were here. I didn't get too much done. Mostly helping them, we had fun!

    1. Thanks Mary! I'm going to see if I can get an outdoor pic tomorrow. I wish the pinks showed up better! I can't wait to see what you are making too!
