Mini Quilt Challenge & Holiday Ornament Swap

Did you hear? You can link up a mini quilt, new or old, for a chance to win some fab prizes.

I've decided to enter an oldie but a goodie into this mini quilt challenge. This is my Kona solids mini quilt, inspired by Rachael's larger version from the Indy Modern Quilt Guild challenge. I love this mini, and it's hanging on my wall!

Also, a little Christmas ornament swap update. With sign-ups now closed, we have 15 participants (yay!), so I'll be e-mailing you with partner assignments. Looking forward to this simple swap!
