Back in September I took up a challenge by Sandie to make and trade 3 quilties with a button theme. The teeny quilts are made to finish 4" x 6" and can incorporate many techniques - much like an Artist's Trading Card, they're miniature works of art that can be traded, swapped, displayed etc etc. I'd never made anything like this before, so I thought to myself, "Why not?"
So, out came the journal and the colouring pencils and I faffed about with a couple of ideas. Once I sought of knew what I wanted to do, I started making them - none came out as I originally planned - but that's the beauty of this sort of medium - you go where your quilties take you!
It was my intent to show you the ones I made to swap - but I can't find my photo's anywhere! They're obviously a victim of my recent computer change over - aaagh. I cleaned up all my photos prior to transferring all the files (which took over 16 hours using the 'easy transfer' method) so it's quite possible I've deleted them in error - damn!!
So, I was then going to show you the ones I received yesterday - all of which are fantastic and so full of clever elements that I see something different each time I look at them.......and my camera is out of juice!
So, maybe I'll come back later in the day and try again........
I'm linking up with Lynn at Lily's Quilts at the Small Blog Meet - be sure to leave a comment so I can return the favour. Cheers!!
