a start

This week-end I was able to start on my project for the Savvy Seasons swap. I've got the top pretty much done for either a pillow or maybe a mini quilt. I may add a little more if I do a mini quilt, but still trying to decide which direction to go. What do you think, a pillow, a mini, or another suggestion??

I really love this cute little twist on the pinwheel!! It is so scrappy and fun!! My partner asked for something that could be out through all winter so there are no real Christmas fabrics, just some fun snowflakes and then some pretty Ruby, polka dots and stripes. Can you tell, my partner also likes red and aqua!?!

I am working on another project for my sweet partner but I know if I show then it will be quite a giveaway to my partner that it is for her. So I'll be waiting to show you what else I'm working on, but I have to say...it is cute!! :)

Also, have you noticed I'm getting farther behind on my FMQA blocks!! I was doing so well with keeping up this summer, but fall has certainly made me "fall" behind!! Yikes!! I'm thinking definitely of doing a lap size now, so hopefully with a few more I'll be good to start putting it together soon. Here is my most recent block~

  7. I just love it! So beautiful, those are really my colors! I vote for a pillow, because the squares are small and making a quilt would be a lot of work to add to it. Of course a really mini mini quilt would be fine, you're almost done! I guess it depends on how much more time you want to put into it. No matter what you do, it is beautiful and will turn out lovely! Let us see how it turns out.
