More Minis...

I hung my mini Swoon up in the sewing room and decided I needed a few more minis. They're kind of perfect to add some quilty decor to the room and fit in my limited wall spaces.

First up, I can finally share my MQG Riley challenge. I decide since it was due in February and I've been wanting to piece some feathers, I'd go with a Valentine theme. The idea came from a print I saw on etsy...

It was a challenge to get everything to fit together, but definitely fun to make!

So back to the minis... After toying with a few ideas, I decided to miniaturize my Garden Lattice quilt from my book. You can see it here compared to the big one.

It turned out so cute! Someone on Instagram requested the measurements for this little block, so here you go:
White: 2 - 1" x 2 1/2"; 2 - 1" x 3 1/2"; 4 - 1" x 1 1/2"
Print: 1 - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"; 4 - 1 1/2" x 1 3/4"; 4 - 1 1/2" x 2 3/4"
The sashing is made from strips cut 1" and the block is constructed just like the one in the book!

Don't you just love this little mouse print from Catnap? The color is so pretty - I'll be using that one again!

So with this mini and a mini "C" quilt I made, my desk area in my sewing room is all set up. I got the initial quilt idea from Camille - saw it hanging in her booth at Quilt Market!

And this beautiful bundle arrived on my doorstep last week! I'm quilting-along with Amanda at Material Girl. It's a layer cake sampler quilt-along. You can learn more about it here, see the quilt and if you get there by Friday enter for a chance to win a Layer Cake to get you started: Layer Cake Sampler Quilt Along. Hope you'll join us!!
