Bird Bird Bird Craftster Swap

It's been awhile since I participated in a swap, but I needed to feel inspired and challenged...and there's nothing like a theme with a deadline to do that. This swap was called Bird Bird Bird, and I like birds so that seemed like a good fit! I tried something new this time - a mini art quilt - and I didn't buy anything new, I only used materials and supplies I had on hand.

The whole box - I used pattern paper for packaging, my favorite way to recycle! I tried to make a package that I would love to receive myself.

Mini art quilt/wallhanging. Measurements are about 8" high by 6" wide.

Back of the quilt with my alberta alberta label.

A close up of the fabric print I made using a stamp, inkpad, and some heavy cotton. This was 1 of 3 lavender sachets i made, the other fabrics I used were remaining scraps from the quilt.

I can't wait to try another mini quilt, and making my own prints again too!
