Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

It has arrived!

my Mini QT swap partner has received the little quilt I made for her, so I can show the whole thing now!
I teased you with this
sneaky peek, Mini QT B&W+1 not square
and this,
it's in the mail

The theme was Black & White + 1 colour, could not be square or rectangle.
Here's my inspiration - this little thank you card arrived just as I was trying to decide what I would do.
B&W+1 Inspiration Mini QT swap
I had fun figuring out how to piece the houndstooth pattern, and while I didn't do it as fine as the little card, my finished squares are 1", and let me tell you, I'd go blind if I had to make 'em any smaller! 
Here it is!
B&W+1 Not Sq Mini QTswap

I'm very pleased with it, and my partner indicates she loves it, so win-win!
Where do you find your inspiration?
Happy quilting!
