    the rules of the swap are anything between 12" and 24" in any shape such as circle or rectangle etc. I think this one was 14" x 18" or there abouts.

    As for a mini that is matter of personal perception. I have seen people call a quilt a mini at 36" x 36". It is all in how you view it. I prefer to keep mine under 14" because they are easier to quilt down. I am not good at that part and the smaller it is the easier it is for me to handle turning it under the needle and less bulk to deal with. I got frustrated with one I did that was 18" because I am not used to having to move bulk around. I kept having to rearrange and move the excess and that frustrates me. One of the reasons I will never do a full size quilt again.

    Here's the whole quilt

    Yep, when I did my granddaughters quilts there was so much shoving and pulling and my shoulders hurts for days. So I'm making smaller ones. Although I have my day bed cover and two others that I am just making blocks and I'll put them together. Then I'll decide what and how I want to quilt it. Hate sending them out, costs more than I can really afford for the number of quilts I'm making.

    I love this. I'm going to have to start trying to make miniatures. I did figure out how to make "thinking outside the block" yesterday. I used 1 1/2" strips. I should have gone smaller like 1". But I wouldn't have even tried to figure it out if it wasn't for my #1 teacher......

    I hope to get back into the swaps someday. I had to bow out for awhile as I haven't had the time to do them.
    They are fun!!

    This is it. Just strips, Log cabin but I would have never even attempted trying to figure it out before you. Didn't need the pattern. :)
