Where do you go for your monthly mini inspiration? For me it's usually my scrap bin, orphan blocks, and/or Pinterest. This month is was all three.
When I saw this little quilt on Pinterest I related to it immediately. After all, I had 4 blocks of narrow strips sitting in a drawer that would be perfect for the center of this month's mini so that's where I started.
These strips came from a charm pack that Rachel had given me a while ago and I found it really fun to work in a different color palette.
I pulled what I needed for this little piece from my supply of 1-1/2" strips, squares, and rectangles. It was so easy and now it's done!
I found this old print in my stash that was just the right size for the back. It's machine quilted in diamonds. Note the binding is split--red on 2 sides and blue on 2. The finished piece is 12-1/2" x 16".
Wendy will post her mini by the end of the month so be sure and check back with her then :)
I changed the little quilt display in my sewing space. This time it has a patriotic theme for Memorial Day :)
There are lots of violets blooming in our yard. They are so pretty!
And I found a new wildflower. It's called Yellow Archangel. Couldn't have been any closer. It was right in the woods near our driveway :)
That's all for now.
Enjoy the holiday! We are so looking forward to our family get-together!
