Make a quilt, make a friend

The Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap is in full swing - Kristi got together a bunch of great, crafty people to make mini-quilts for each other, with a great hashtag on Instagram, #makeaquiltmakeafriend. Lots of swappers made fun mosaics of some of their favorite things, to give their partners some insight into their style. I think mine is kind of all over the place, so I'm not sure how helpful mine is, but it sure is pretty!

Some of my most favoritist favorites, partner...

I've spent a good bit of time going through my partner's favorites, trying to come up with some ideas that she would appreciate, but I'm having a hard time deciding which one to go with, so that's where you guys come in...
