Friday check in: MQG swap reveal!

It's time to reveal the results of the Mini Swap hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild -- at least, of my part in it.  Kathy C. was my swap partner.  Here's the 24" mini quilt that she sent me.   Gray and coral are two of my current favorite colors and I love batiks.  


I used batiks for "Toward the Morning," the mini I sent to Kathy. 

This was the first time I've made a flange binding. 

The triangles-in-formation design is from a stenciled frieze at Crab Tree Farm which I toured in July, 2019 .   

The colorway was inspired by the sunrise photo I took when we were in Crisfield, Maryland, on our 2019 Road Scholar trip. (Little did we know that we wouldn't have RS trips in 2020 or 2021.)  

The swap was fun and I plan to enter next year!  

Linking up with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? and  Finished Or Not Friday

Beautiful! Swaps are stressing and fun at the same time, especially when you don't know your partner.

Thanks Nann for including me in your blog post.
I agree the MQG swap was a fun and rewarding experience.
My inspiration was a quilt pattern from the MQG member file called Solar Flare. When you mentioned delving into African wax prints I initially tried using them but the "giraffe" batik I had seemed a better fit.
I too look forward to participating again next year.
Thanks for being a delightful partner.
