    This little wall hanging was created from 3 of the 12 blocks from a local block exchange I am in. We were given the focal fabric of the flowery (Michael Miller) and could use only a true black, white, and red. The blocks were all dif sizes divisable by 2". I gave 8 of the other blocks away. I only used 3 of the 4 I kept as they were flower themed. So something different for me. It is due Nov. 7 at the next exchange. I recently posted pics of the Thimbleberries theme we are doing for this exchange.

    Turned out very cute. I love the black/white/reds. It's such a clean combination. I think I have some of that same floral in a fat quarter.

    Sounds like a fun exchange to have all different sizes - your miniquilt is beautiful!

    I love the black/white/red combo too

    Every exchange we do is different. Coming up I think we are only doing one block each and not swapping and in celtic design. Then someone will put all the blocks together for a donation.
