little quilt monday~~~guild swap challenge

Little Quilt Monday

I have joined the OKC Modern Quilt Guild.  At the last meeting we traded ziplock bags of fabric scraps to use to make a project for the owner of the scraps.  I decided to make several small things with my partner's pretty pink, green and brown fabric scraps.  I started with the Drunkard's Path quilt block to make another potholder like I did here.

I also made a little pincushion filled with crushed walnut shells.

The last project was a table runner using my charms on point technique.

I added solid fabric squares and the owl fabric from my stash.  I was so happy that her bag included the colorful striped fabric.  I love using striped fabric for binding.  I hand stitched with pink and green crochet thread.

 I decided on projects that I was comfortable making for this swap challenge.   I think they turned out pretty cute, and it was fun playing with someone else's fabric : )

Now it is your turn to link up something to

Little Quilt Monday

1.  This link-up party is for any small project.  For example, mini quilts, doll quilts, baby quilts, place mats, mug rugs,
wall quilts, table runners, etc.
2.  They can be a WIP(work-in-progress) or finished.
3.  If it is something from the past there is no need to write a new blog post, just link the one that you have already written, and, please link back to my blog post.
4.   If you are interested, you can add your pictures to my flickr group here, or join my Facebook group here. 

Let's inspire each other!
