Black and White Mini and AG Hexi Pouch Finishes

I have two fun finishes to share this week with the promise of more next week. I'm in a black and white mini swap hosted on Instagram and I finished up my mini this week as well as a surprise for a quilty friend who needed some love. First, the mini...

I love how this light shows off the quilting. I had a lot of fun with this one quilting straight(ish) lines with Aurifil 50wt on my domestic Juki. I think it helped carry the feel of the pattern.

For this mini I used all Cotton and Steel prints, mostly from the Black and White 2 collection. They were so fun to play with and I love the pop of color. The pattern is Sweet Tooth by Canoe Ridge Creations.

I used the left overs from three fat quarters to do the back and binding of this mini. Two of these are my partners favorite prints and it was fun to include a little bit more of them for her. I also love my little tag from yardage by Sweetwater for Moda.

So, I have a quilting friend on IG who made a whole bunch of things for a birthday swap and then got left behind during her month. It was sad and she wasn't feeling too great. Her sister rallied a bunch of us together and we each made her something to help her feel loved. She loves Alison Glass (me too!!) so I thought this hexi pouch would be a fun and quick make for her. I used the Open Wide Pouch pattern and threw some one inch hexies on the front - she loved it!
That's me for the week. Thanks for stopping by! I have three tops ready to baste and quilt this week so hopefully I finish one by next Friday. Until then I'm linking up with Finish It Up Friday.
