For the Love of Solids/Modern Mini Challenge!

I finished up my For the Love of Solids swap package. Here it is in all its glory!

FTLOS Swap mini
I studied my partner's mosaic and favorites, and she seems to prefer simple to fussy (yay!). I found this mini by Mary on Lake Pulaski and loved the way she used the Wild Things pattern by Camille Roskelley but allowed to whirligigs to float in the background fabric.

FLOTS mini close up
I added a skinny border, binding, and flange, and then finished it off with a little hand quilting. It measures about 18 inches square.

FTLOS Swap package
I'm sending along this little linen/purple bow clutch. I'll get it in the mail as soon as the shipping window opens!
