Awww! I cant wait for you to see him in real life. Everyone deserves a little pick me up after a bad week Smiley

Aaand love the diff fabrics used on the trunk of that tree.

Thanks. It's just been such a bad week. My MIL passed away last week so I've been with my husband's family all week. Now, I'm trapped at the Omaha airport on standby, trying to get home SOMETIME today. I probably won't be working a full day tomorrow.

I don't want anyone to think I'm being rude to their quilt posts so I'm letting you all know that my internet will be cut off tomorrow Cry and won't be reconnected on the other end for about 2 weeks Tongue I'll be able to use my phone to look in on all the new eye candy while traveling but don't guarantee that I'll be able to make posts with it.

I received my mini art quilt from fiddlegirl8 today! I love it - it's right off my wist. I will apologize in advance, I do not claim to be a photographer. The photos do not do the colors justice, please keep that in mind!

Here's a photo of the whole package, wrapped up all pretty: the MAQ for me, an extra for me and one for my grandgirl! Thank you for your generosity fiddlegirl8! Oh, and a map in case I'm ever traveling cross country through Kansas!



Here is the bling for my grandgirl, she will love it! some sparkly fish for her hair (we are both Pisces you know!) and some stick-on rhinestones that she will wear as tattoos!



Here's my extra: a flat water bottle that I can take with me on my bicycle - and it matches my bike perfectly! Fiddlegirl said that she bought one for herself too, have you tried it out yet?



And here is my mini art quilt. I wish the background color was more true to life, it is a lovely green with tiny brown polka dots. Isn't it awesome?!



And here's a closeup of the flowers:



and the back. I love the fabric on the back, too bad you can't see the detail!



Thanks for being an awesome partner Diane - I LOVE my package. If you have better photos, please post them! And thanks to MareMare and pjherbert for being our organizers!


PS - just realized that the original artwork this was based on shows it with the flowers on the bottom with the sprouts on top (upside down). The artwork says they are rainbow seeds with sprouting leaves. I think I now like it better as flowers with stems!

Playswithneedles was an easy partner to create a MAQ for!  She had lots of GREAT pictures on her wist, and this one caught my eye - but, one small thing - it's a MAQ of seed pods with sprouts!  The MAQ pics are upside down -   The original on PWN's wist was labeled "Growth" and it referred to rainbow seeds.  I like the pods with sprouts name better!  This was really outside my comfort zone - I am all  neat and tidy and want no raw edges. However, the artistry of this mini quilt called for raw edge applique and so I sewed it that way - I loved it when I finished, but I kept thinking along the way, "shouldn't I tuck in those raw edges"!!  I'm so happy you like it - I picked the back fabric first, but it was flowers right side up, so the back side is what the flowers might look like, but the front is actually the seeds sprouting!

Here's some pictures I took before sending.  First, the original artist's MAQ -


My in progress shot (I later removed a few pods - TOO MANY)- I took this picture so if I knocked the pods loose, I could remember how I wanted them placed -


Finished front:


Upclose shot of seed pods - look at that wonky stitching!!  I really had to focus doing circles on my machine!!



IMO, this is the best thing I've ever made for a swap.  I absolutely loved doing it, even though my normal OCD self kinda fought with me at the start up.  I'm glad you like it, playswithneedles!  

The things I sent for your granddaughter were actually for flip flop embellishment, but your ideas are good too!  However she wants to use them!  I was hoping I matched that super looking bicycle you have, with the water bottle.  Yes, I've used mine - when I walk - it's great!  

Thanks for swapping - I had a great time!

Thanks for posting the additional photos, those are great!

And I love that depending on my mood, I can display your mini art quilt as seed pods one day, and flowers the next! It is really well done, I must commend you on the binding. I'm going to have to try making my binding a bit wider like yours, I find narrower binding a bit fiddly!

And I love the green background with brown polka dots. I love circles and dots and green and brown are my favorite colors!

And thanks for the clarification on the flip flop embellishments. I'm sure the grandgirl will know right off that is what they are! I still think that she'll be sticking the rhinestones on her arms and face as tattoos  Grin
