This blog is primarily about quilting & sewing but also incorporates a bit about my journey to a healthy lifestyle and my family. All of it will include a healthy bit of sarcasm, mostly at myself, but really, none one is safe!
Last year I made several minis and used those opportunities to stretch my creative wings. It was not easy and often I found myself coming up with an idea which then proved quite difficult to execute. I have a half finished mini sitting in my sewing room for that very reason. I will finish it one day but suffice it to say, it reminded me to consider my skill in these bright ideas, too.
I drafted a mini quilt design which I felt had a modern feel and highlighted the fabric. After printing it, I modified the design just a little further.
Then I got to sewing. I love foundation piecing and that is the technique I used.
I pieced the binding and the back with leftover bits of fabric.
I kept the quilting simple because I felt there was no need for anything more, the mini was busy enough and the fabrics were what needed to show.
I love how this came out. I am hoping that this year, I can try this pattern with some other fabrics and if it works again, who knows? Maybe I'll share the pattern with you all (of course, that might require more organization than I actually have.)
