The month of September brought the Teal Mini Swap. This is a fun event organized by Beth Helfter of EvaPaige Quilt Designs to raise awareness and money for ovarian cancer research. Teal ribbons represent ovarian cancer (hence the name).
Each participant paid $15, most of which went to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Everyone received a piece of the challenge fabric, which was donated by Blank Fabrics.
We had a month to make a mini quilt or a mug rug for our swap partner, and we had to somehow incorporate the challenge fabric. Here is the mug rug I made for my partner, Jenny.
I happened to have a little kit hanging around with this pattern and fabric from Sew Lux. I thought this was the perfect time to use it, so I just swapped out the background fabric in the kit for the challenge fabric. It was really fun to make!
I love the mug rug I received from my partner. She called it tumbling spools, and it's even quilted to look like thread. It lives right next to my sewing machine. Thanks Jenny!
