January 2015 is in the books

January was action packed. Business travel, our annual sales meeting, sinus infections.
Not as much quilting/sewing as I would like, but I did get a few things done.
Finished this quilt:

Pattern is "Cloud Nine" by Villa Rosa Designs (my 3rd using this pattern, yes I love it!). Fabrics were from a FQ bundle I bought from Quilt Dad.

Love my FMQ here, continuous feathers. My new favorite stitch design. Practice works!

I joined the schitzel and boo mini quilt swap on instagram. I made this for my partner:

I received this:
Love the colors, pattern used, fabrics, and the extras included were awesome!
Such a fun, well-run swap!

Since I volunteered to be a swap angel, I got to make a second mini quilt:
The back, to show the quilting:

Mini quilts are so good for trying new things/patterns/techniques. And mini quilts are quite a collectable pursuit among us modern quilters.

Binding on another, with 4 flimsies to quilt. Hoping to get some serious quilting time!
