Here's my little schpeal on swaps. Just my two cents on the whole thing. A little advice, if you will.Please, don't sign up for a swap if you aren't active on Instagram, or Pinterest, or at least a blog.

I’ve shown some sneak peaks of my Sew Sew Modern 5 swap items, but didn’t want to show the full package until my partner received them. Well my partner, Deanna @ Little D and Me, received them so we’re good to go! Sew Sew Modern is a swap of one larger item and a coordinating smaller item. Coordinating can mean whatever you want it to mean, though. Deanna requested a mini-quilt with a saying on it for her daughter’s room.

I spent a lot of time looking at sayings and asking friends with kids what sayings would be appropriate (and short enough to put on a quilt) and in the end the first idea won out, “You are my sunshine.” The lettering uses the “My First Alphabet” pattern by From Blank Pages…, available on Craftsy. I loved that song as a kid! (BTW, does anyone know what that main backing fabric is? For the small item, I found a photo of a dandelion embroidery hoop project in my partner’s flickr favorites, and I really loved it. As for me? And the little pouch is just awesomely cute!

Ever wondered how to sew and trim half rectangle triangle (HRT) blocks?

Well you’ve come to the right place! Let me show you how I like to do them. HRTs add another fun shape to your quilt designing arsenal. You can make cool, elongated diamonds and zigzags and parallelograms and…long spikey things. The list goes on and on. If you’ve made half square triangles (HSTs) before you might be thinking, no sweat, an HRT is just a stretched out HST. Being square, you can rotate an HST 90 degrees and still have an identical shape but with the diagonal seam reversed. Above: An HST block rotated 90 degrees each time – every diagonal option and colour placement option can be achieved with the one block.

If you rotate an HRT 90 degrees to change the direction of the diagonal you will NOT have the same shape. Above: The HRT’s diagonal direction will determine the layouts. All that to say – when making half rectangle triangles you have to pay attention to the direction you need your diagonal to face. Nebula Mini Quilt. TGIFF - Faith, Hope, Love.

I really like the secondary design that is created by this block, and really wanted to try the block out, so it seemed like a good idea to try it out really small. Not to scare anyone off, but there are 448 tiny pieces in this quilt. If you are careful and precise, it is a do-able project, I promise!
