Modernista swap sewing

I finally got brave (or crazy:) enough to join the "big" girls in the Modernista Swap on Flickr!! I have long admired all the gorgeous pillows these ladies create & decided it was the right time to join in on the fun! Do you think this will be the start of more bigger swaps? ;) I do love a good swap, so fingers crossed I get a good response in this one!

My partner requested a mini quilt for her living room so that is what I've been sewing in my spare time the last few weeks. I finally got the binding stitched on this weekend & can fully reveal it!!!!

I started with a low volume patchwork background & then ironed on & machine stitched & embroidered leaves in purple & yellow prints. The stem is this fabulous yellow twill measuring tape! I am so very happy with how it turned out & am hoping my partner loves it as much as I do!!! :)

Happy sewing!!!! xKaren
