November STUD swap

This adorable little mini was from Kimmie, my partner for the November swap on STUD.

Included in the package were some post-it notes, chocolate, and some green rick-rack (which I forgot to put in the picture).

This is what I sent to Kimmie - it's Donna's Block by Carol Doak - all paper-pieced.

At least I remembered to put a border on it. Have you ever gotten into a series of mistakes - like forgetting to put borders on your minis before you quilted them? I did 5 in a row - finished the block, then made the sandwich, then quilted it, and THEN realized that it would really look a whole lot better with a border. I think that I've done it enough times now that I won't forget any more. But now I have 5 little unbordered minis that would make great potholders!
