Winter time Mini Quilt Swap and Inspiration

Hi Everyone. I have been working really hard on this wintertime mini quilt. I was inspired by a mini quilt that I can't seem to find now. I made a wonky star/sun and pieced the whirling fabric into the starry fabric. I made some wonky trees and a bright colored house. I have almost finished quilting. I hope I can get the binding on and wash it this weekend then I can get it in the mail next week. (I love getting things done early) It is due March 1st. I really am not sure if the person getting it is into wonky stuff but I hope she loves it. I just finished opening my "seven days of Inspiration" swap stuff. This was so much fun. The only thing not pictured here is a great pin cushion which I have been using since I opened it. The kids are trying to convince me that I should share the candy with them. I think I'll make them wait a little longer. :)
Well the opening ceremonies for the Winter Olympics are tonight. There are all kinds of challenges going on during the Olympics and I am not joining any of them. I am trying desperately to complete my TO DO list. My list currently has about 30 things on it. It will be a feat of Olympic proportion if I can complete the List by the end of the Olympics.
Well I hope everyone has lots of crafts to keep them busy during the long hours of television watching. Go Team USA :)

Your winter snow scene with the cute little house is a really wonderful piece for the Winter Swap. I wish I had signed up for that! I never made anything in that wonky style, but I should!

The little house quilt is adorable. I'm sure your swap partner will be thrilled with it.

I received your beautiful mini quilt a few weeks ago and just LOVE it!! I wish I could tell you that I have been using it but my daughter, who is five, has claimed it as her own and uses it daily for tea parties! :-)
This was the second swap I have participated in and I am loving them!
Thank you so much for all you hard work on this mini swap. I look forward to seeing what beautiful things you will create next!

Thankful in Wisconsin - Kate
