August Goal--Text Me Mini Quilt

The goal for August is pretty simple.  I signed up for the Text Me Mini Quilt Swap months ago, and now it's time to finally work on it.  Basically a mini quilt using at least two different text fabrics.  There was no way I wasn't signing up for this one. 
I've had some fabrics pulled for a few weeks now.  (Had to build up my stash of text fabrics, which was harder than I thought since my local quilt shop didn't have much to pick from.  So I had to order stuff online, which is always dangerous.)  My secret partner is also a fan of Lori Holt, but I didn't want to buy any of her latest fabric line.  Instead I opted to get her latest book (on sale), and use it with the Daysail fabrics (and a few others) that I've been buying this summer.
I still don't know quite what I'm doing.  I've had a few ideas rolling around in my brain.  I have graph paper and pencil.  But it's probably going to be using tiny 6" blocks, because I like tiny blocks.  I feel if I just make a 12" block and put a border on it, that's not really stretching myself creatively, which is what I think swaps should be for me.  Now I just have to get making!  (In my spare time, when I'm not helping with the High School Band, now that my son is an incoming freshman.) 
Whatever I make has to be done by the end of the month, which is why I've always been planning it to be my August goal.  And there's a very good chance that I really will make two of these at once--one for my partner and one for me to keep.  Because, come on--Daysail and text fabric!  I need whatever that becomes.  On my wall.
