Modernista Homemade Swap

This was my first time to take part in the Modernista Homemade Swap and I was very nervous. You have to make a large and small object. I did a mini-quilt and scrap basket.

I really can't say anything about my partner because she hasn't received the package yet and might read this. That being said, based on the tracking number, she should have so that is stressing me out a little bit (What if I wrote the address wrong? What if someone stole it? What it it was destroyed in transit?).

Anyways, I will go into detail about why I made what I made later. For now: Just photos! This first one shows the exterior panel for the scrap basket.

This second photo shows the quilting I did on the scrap basket. I stitched in the ditch along the strips and added quarter inch lines along what would become the bottom of the basket. In my mind, this would make it stand a little sturdier.

And here is the finished scrap basket!

For the mini-quilt, I was able to add some FMQ that I was proud enough of to not rip out! Score!

This is the mini-quilt in all its flutterby glory. Really though, why are butterflies not called flutterbys? They flutter by! C'mon! That kept me up at night when I was a kiddo.
