Working On A Swap Project

The deadline is quickly approaching for a swap that I am in.  
Autumn is praying that I will finish it in time.


I did begin the embroidery portion of the mini quilt and this is the outer border,
 or one of them anyway.  
I am using a pattern by my friend Kelly.  
You can find it here if you want to make awesome wavy goose borders for something too.  
I had to make 8 of these for my project and they took me most of a day to get them all finished. 
 I graded them by shade then decided that I should have made 2 more but 
if I do that now they won't grade.  
This just means that the outer 4 corners will be white, but I'm going with
 "it's a design decision" not a brain bubble.  Right?
I am going to link up with a Lovely Year of Finishes and
 this is the project I want to complete for January.
I am also linking up to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday.


I also decided that I most certainly did NOT have enough things of my own to do so decided to host a Tula Pink Mini Quilt Swap over on Instagram.  
Sign ups are complete and I am working with my friend, Tracey, to get this organized and to get partners assigned.


It should be a lot of fun and hopefully not too much work!  What have you been up to?
