Beach Bound Swap

Here is the Beach Bound Swap I created for my partner.  She just got it today so I can finally post complete pictures....

My partner is a teacher and had jellyfish, mermaids and narwhals on her inspiration board.    All of it kinda stumped me because I am not a fan of sea creatures-- When I think beach, I am more into flip flops, cute umbrellas and tropical decorations...

I realized my partner was really into rainbow and mustache and beard stuff after I really looked at more pictures on her IG feed.  In the end I came up with this Texan Rainbow Jellyfish on bubble fabric and I framed him inside a simple rainbow star block.
I made this Zipper Pouch to match the jellyfish mini.  This is the same rainbow fabrics and I added this fun chalkboard teacher fabric mustache applique to the front and a pocket to the back.   
My partner is in Oregon so I thought Texas lining would be fun.  
I included some beach and mustache extras in the package, this swap was alot of fun!

Text Me Mini Quilt Swap sent

Now that the #textmeteamdyac #textmeminiquiltswap has been received I can reveal the mini quilt I made for my partner.  My partner @suziesarmoire loves books so I found a quote I thought she would love and had it digitized for the center of a #simplestarblock.  I used 17 different text fabrics, this was fun to create and hard to part with this, my daughter wanted it for her room!  #rainbowcolors #textfabric #rainbowfabulous

Here is the matching mug and mug rug.

Matching pincushion

And the obligatory zipper pouch in high school colors.  I had to research the school district in her town and compare pictures in her IG feed to make sure I got the right school.

Bookmark Swap McKMQG

We had a book and bookmark swap at our September meeting, this is what I came up with.  I couldn't think of colors so I made the bookmark match the book.  The spool is an in the hoop pattern I modified by adding elastic.  I think it turned out pretty neat.
