I'm a swap wannabee, it seems

Big Little George - All done!

Here is Big Little "Sumptuous" George, at least that is the name Judith gave him before I added the last border. I think maybe sumptuous still fits. It is made from the tutorial Lynne at Lily's Quilts did a couple of months ago.

Can you hang a quilt on pointe? Do you put a dowel or something across the corners in the middle? If you have done this, please share your experience. It looks great square but I like it better on pointe, I think.

This little wall quilt turned out to be 21.5" square. It is made of Shades of Grey organic cotton by Daisy Jainie and Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons. The outside border has finished 1" squares. I made them sort of assembly line style, here is a mid point photo.

I have been watching all the swap quilts those Brit Swappers are making, and also the amazingly clever "stuff" the 80's swappers are making and I am pretty sure that I have swap envy big time. I think I am going to sign up next time there is a new one. In the meantime, I am a swap wannabe. At least now I have a pretty good wall quilt too.

Enjoy your weekend, seems for many people it is a long weekend. Not in Canada, we had our long weekend last week.

P.S. I have linked this to {Sew} Modern Monday, where there are other great projects to check out.
