Nerds - swap received & sent

I posted about the Nerds swap here.  It was a swap I found on instagram. 

 Here is what I made for my partner.  It wasn't listed in her likes, but she mentioned she liked psych.


I love the pineapples.  I chose to go with minimal quilting since it's a wall hanging.

Here is a collage of the things I got from my nerds swap partner.  The top is a pin that looks like animal crossing.  Then some chocolate, a mini notebook and a laser light.  Then a painting!  With the Vulcan salute!

 She also made me a mini!!!! With Tetris blocks!!!! OMG!! SO in love!! This isn't where it will hang forever, but I wanted it put up for now!

Jelly Roll race

Here is the jelly roll I picked up for my jelly roll race quilt.

 I don't remember when I first heard about a jelly roll race quilt, but after watching the video I KNEW I wanted to make one.  I bought a jelly roll and finally got it done.

I started it on Tuesday night, sewing everything together took FOREVER! Then I pressed and trimmed (I don't think they pressed in the video I saw). 

I'm not as in love with it as some of the others I have seen.  I don't know if it's the colors or what not.  I do LOVE how fast it came together.  I will definitely be making another one!

 When I saw there would be a nerds swap on Instagram I instantly had to join!! Here is the collage I put together of my "nerdoms" : Animal Crossing, Shrek, Tetris, Cats, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Mario.

I cannot share what I am making for my partner since I think it will be a give away, but I will be mailing it later this month!

Scrappy trip along

I have been a part of the scrappy trip along bee for a few rounds now (I think this will be my third time?)

 I enjoy being a part of it!! There is SO much variety!! I also use it as time to make myself a few extra quilt blocks.  so hopefully I will have a top done. . .Sometime!  This was after the last round, I need to get a more up to date picture done!

Spring Fling

Here is the finished mini I made for the Spring fling swap.  I am VERY happy with how this came out.  And of course I forgot to take picture before shipping it.

So you can see the binding and kind of see the quilting here.  I thought the brown would nicely frame it.
