the very last minute

Pffff...the mini quilt for the "spring blooms mini quilt swap" is on its way to my secret swap partner. Just in time before the very last mailing date! Why do I always have to wait till the very last day to finish a project??
I’d think to myself, "I’ve got plenty of time, it’s not due for weeks!" Then, before I know it...I hit the deadline!

I used an embroidery piece (found in the thrift store) for the center, I machine pieced the nine patch blocks and hand appliqued the green hearts. The minimal quilting is done by hand. I like how this mini quilt turned out and hope my partner will too! I can hardly wait to recieve mine.
A big thank you for Michele from quilting gallary for organizing this wonderful swap. If you go to her site jou can join a new swap she's organizing "In the Good Ol’ Summertime Mini Quilt Swap". The deadline to mail is September 21st...so plenty of time!!

Hahaha, dit is zeer herkenbaar! Niet alleen bij swaps, ik zit vandaag cadeautjes te maken voor mijn buuv, die morgen jarig is en dat weet ik ook àllang en waarom ik dan ook nog tussendoor achter de pc zit, weet ik al helemaal niet. Maar bij jou heeft het in ieder geval geen invloed gehad op het resultaat. Prachtig geworden! Ben ook benieuwd wat jij krijgt.
