Rain Drops Mini

The second round of the Schnitzle & Boo Mini Quilt Swap is wrapping up.  There were over 600 people participating this round...amazing!  That means 1200 mini quilts are flying around the world, landing in mailboxes and making lots of people smile!  This is a secret swap, so the recipient of the mini I made didn't know I was making it for her until it arrived in her mailbox.   

Alright partner what do you think? I picked all your favorite colors but was thinking about a pop of something else... #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap #makeaquiltmakeafriend 
This is the fabric I pulled from my stash for my partner.  The raindrop print was perfect for tying everything together.  I picked four blocks from Tula Pink's City Sampler book, that really worked well to show off the fabrics.
Alright partner...I got the top done, just need to decided on backing and goodies! #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap #makeaquiltmakeafriend

Here's the front and the you can tell the rain drop print was really the focal point.  I made sure when I was cutting that I would always have them going the same direction.

I was just a bit short on the turquoise print I used for the binding but I'm really happy with the way that bit of pink finished it off.
A close up of the quilting... 

I don't FMQ well, so I chose to quilt around  some of the shaped created by the piecing and a few of the rain drops in the Tula print.
I included a couple of extra goodies...including a pouch for sunglasses, a roll of washi tape and a great pad of post it graph paper.

Linking up with Show and Tell hosted by Randi at I have to say.
