I have finished my little quilt for the Another Little Quilt Swap. I abstracted a photo from my swap partner's blog and then added just a bit of whimsy. All of these fabrics were pulled from the stash, including the backing.
There is one new thing on this quilt: a red piping was added to separate the blocks from the black border. I just followed Ricky Tims' instructions on his DVD. Easey peasey. It is quilted using a red Mederia Supertwist metallic thread on top and a 40 weight neon poly Mederia in the bobbin. I am quite pleased with how the quilting came out; I think I've finally gotten the hang of machine speed and hand speed. There are only a couple of places that the stitches get tiny. The quilting almost looks like I have BSR on my machine.
All in all, I had fun making this quilt. It's being washed up now and I am going to block it dry. Then it will get popped into the mail to my partner. And the title of this post? One of the blocks in the quilt is unlike the rest. Find it.
Update 6/19/08: my partner, Ramona, has received the quilt! Here is a link to the blog post that I based the quilt on. If you are a bit squeamish don't follow the link. Just sayin'.
