MT Swap complete!

/ Saturday, 5 June 2010 /
Quilted and bound
I finished my outgoing miniquilt for the Modify Tradition swap.  It will go in the post on Monday to some unsuspecting female.  Here's a view from a step back so you can the whole thing.
Modify Tradition swap: outgoing
These are not really colours I would normally use, but I do like them together.  It makes me think of summer by the pool.  One fat quarter wasn't quite big enough for the back, so I augmented with the yellow and blue inset pieces.
MT swap back
And, look!  I got to use those fancy stitches on my machine for once, in putting this label together.

This is so gorgeous. Even my daughter was distracted from her birthday-wish Skype conversation with my parents across the ocean, and leaned over to whisper, "That's really pretty!"
