English Paper Piecing: Wordswap2017

This is a mini quilt that I made for a swap #wordswap2017 , the first swap of the year. Last year I took a break from swaps- both international and national(well! almost) and this year am back to the scene but have become very picky given the paucity of time.

I tried mixing the black&whites to get a textured look background and the pinks go from dark to light in the background. My swap partner is someone from far far away and the last time I had someone from the country I had to send to, it took ages and no tracking was updated. Hopefully over time, I will get the knack of mixing colours appropriately.

Hope its better this time and she receives it on time. The word ‘Love’ is something my partner had requested for.

Since these swaps work in a round robin fashion, I send to one quilting partner(cant revel until she receives it) and I received from the wonderful Kirstn(@diestoeckeline on Instagram) from Germany. This mini now adors my centre table in the living room so guests coming in can see how wonderfully talented my Quilting friends are from across the globe.

Linking it to Finish it up Friday at Crazy mom’s quilt!

Edited later:
