So, it’s NOT what you think (though wouldn’t that be fun, too?). STUD stands for “Swap Til You Drop” and it’s another fun mini-quilt swap over on flickr. I participated in their “fussy cut” swap and had to come up with something fun for my partner, Cindy.
I really went round and round in my head with what to fussy cut and how to lay it out. I tried to do a kaleidoscope block and I failed miserably, so ended up going subtle and cutting into some of my coveted Katie Jump Rope fabric:
If you look closely, the print in the circles line up with the background.
I was really happy with how this quilt turned out and I loved doing the pebble quilting.
I and tempted to do an entire quilt like this. Add another quilt to my ever growing list!
Cindy made me this fantastic quilt with spiders on it! She has her own long arm quilting business and I must say the quilting was amazing.
And so many lovely extras!
It was a fun swap and I hope to do more in the future!
