I finished up another mini quilt last night. This one measures 18” x 18” and is made mostly with DS Quilts Aunt Edna and some Hope Valley small gray print. I know some people are sick of gray, but not me!
This pattern was from a 2006 copy of Patchwork Quilting magazine. I got a bunch of older quilting magazines from a friend, and this little mini caught my eye. It was really good practice for me.
I almost didn’t buy that green houndstooth print when I saw it. But I’m so glad I did. I think it looks so pretty with the tomato red color and these little blocks were only 1.5”, so I needed small scale prints.
The backing is this great Aunt Edna plaid and the binding is from another DS Quilts line.
I auditioned several prints for the binding, but I’m glad I went with the red and white stripe.
Even the new cat approved! I am entering this mini quilt in the Ellison Lane Modern Mini challenge. There are some great prizes, and I picked fabrics that I thought my husband would approve of, hoping her husband likes them too! His pick wins a $100 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop and I could put that to good use!
I am linking up this finish to Crazy Mom Quilts.
