Progress on my Spring Blooms Mini-Quilt Swap

Hi everyone, Thanks to all of you who have entered my giveaway. There is still time to enter. So go down to the next post to enter the giveaway. I got up way to early this morning. So I decided that I should use that quiet time to start my Spring Blooms Mini Quilt for my swap partner. Yes, that's right, I just started this morning. I was a bit behind schedule. But I think I did redeem myself. I completed the top of my mini quilt. I designed it myself. It's all done by machine using fusible web applique. I really like the way it has turned out. I've had this vision of what I wanted to make for the longest time. I finally got to actually try it out. It turned out pretty good. Now I just have to make sure I don't ruin it with the quilting. Well, hopefully my partner will like it. It's different. Not a traditional mini quilt. But I'm trying new things and trying to be really creative with my projects. Well, that's all for today.
Happy Stitching!!
Ariane :o)

Hi Ariane, Ilove that mini quilt the petals look so real. How did you do that? It's good to push your boundaries and try something different. Well done!

That looks wonderful. Did you come up with that all by yourself?! I love the green print fabric used for the leaves.
I've thought about joining a swap or quilt-along, i'm just not sure my quilting skills are ready for that!
