Modern Quilt Guild - Mini Quilt Swap Quilt

Last year I had decided to take part in a swap hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild.   Quilts are to be mini quilts, and will either be exchanged at Quilt Con in February or mailed to swap partners before the show. 

My swap partner said she liked earth tones, geometrics, and negative space.     This is the finished top.   The pieced units are a smaller version of the ones I used in the Heart Beat block seen here.  My original plan was to do a miniature of the table-runner layout, but I decided to simplify and not do the connecting blocks.   I then played with the layout and ended up with this.

Am currently debating on how I want to quilt it.  Current two possibilities running thru my head are to echo the 'peaks/valleys' on both sides, or to some modern cross-hatching using the 'peaks / valleys' as guides.  This will be quilted sometime this month.


1. That God is in control of things and knows where He wants me to live with the townhouse where I'm currently living going up for sale this month.

2.  For safety (traffic and weather) in the drive back home from Phoenix over the New Year's holiday weekend.

Very grateful for your safe return. I expect, with the place going up for sale, that some other changes might come, too. I like the look of this TINY quiltlet. =) If you decide on the crosshatching, make it uneven distances? I can envision that, and it would be pretty.

I like your mini quilt! I love the heartbeat art...I've taken several pictures of the art at my dad's cardiac doctor's office...such a great inspiration for a quilt!

You swap partner should be pleased, you accomplished all three of her wishes. Your quilting plan sounds like a winner. Another option might be to quilt straight lines echoing the heartbeat. Turning your block from 100 Blocks into a mini quilt was a fantastic idea!
