Listen - a Mini swap

This is the mini I whipped up for our local guilds mini swap.  We were supposed to make anything but keep it between 12"- 24".  I made "Listen" approx 16" x 16" and it is matchstick quilted.   The fabric in the center was the inspiration and it spoke to me so much as to what to add to it so thus..."listen". 

Since it was a hurry to finish I added the quick corners at the top for hanging and I added the small one at the bottom for a label. Was super quick to just sew it in the binding. 

The guild swap was pretty fun but stressful. We chose the mini's white elephant style so there was lots of stealing of quilts. Not my favorite thing to do as you briefly get attached to the ones you had in your hands.   

Here is the attempt to get our OMQG guild group in a photo. We are so fortunate to have access to Accuquilt for our new meeting home for next year. Thank you Accuquilt!!!

I love your mini, wonderful fabric combination and I love the way you quoted it too. The pop of pink adds just enough interest without detracting from the lovely centre. I would be ecstatic to receive Listen in a swap.

Wow! I love how the roundness of the center circle fabric contrasts with the straightness of the rest of the quilt. The little pop of color makes it fun! And how sweet is the mini you received?! ♡
Wow! Letting go of your mini would have been difficult for me to do - its wonderful! The quilting was the perfect choice. Whoever received it is one lucky duck! And wow again on your meeting space. I bet there's a ton of inspiration in there!
