Whew! I just made the deadline :) I first joined Wendy making monthly minis in January 2018 and it's been ongoing ever since. Hard to believe I've made 36 of these little quilts and this month it's #37!
I don't normally work in orange but had an idea back in October to do something with this Deacon reject. Well, it never materialized then but was resurrected for this month. That's because I found this orange stripe at the thrift shop a couple of months ago and it seemed to be perfect for the border.
More orange for the back--a print I'd been saving for I don't know how many years!
But I thought I'd take you back to the beginning . . .
January 2018 was a reject block from my Gypsy Wife quilt when I was using all vintage fabrics from my collection.
January 2019 was made from leftover tumblers. The large tumbler quilt is still a UFO!
January 2020 was a little quilt inspired from one I saw on Pinterest. In fact, I've posted all my monthly minis to a Pinterest board here. I like seeing them all in one place.
The list of mini makers seems to be growing and there is always time for you to join in! There's nothing more satisfying than making a monthly mini! You get to be creative, use orphan blocks, pull some scraps, and even try something new! You can see Wendy's mini and more here :)
