I'm so excited - I can't wait to see who else made a mini this week! I had a lot of fun making mine, and it's already hanging up in my studio.
I started with sixteen denim 5"squares from the scrap bin.
Then I whacked and re-assembled...
...turned it once, whacked and re-assembled again!
Then I whacked it again and added some strips of 1.5" square scraps sewn together, and ended up with this! I love seeing the sun shining through it.
But I wasn't done there - I decided since I live in the Nashville area, there needed to be some bling to go with those denim blues. A container of the kids' craft items yielded some silver beads and I stitched them on.
And here's my finished mini!
I particularly like this little motif I found in a box while I was looking for embellishments! Since this won't be washed I figured it would be ok to add it on.
I found a pretty linen stripe for the binding...
...and these cute little gray hedgehogs for the back!
And now it hangs on the wall just inside the entrance to my studio! I have another large quilt to hang in the big empty space, I just haven't found the hanging rod yet. Maybe tomorrow!
So now, I want to see what you've created! Did you have a chance to make a mini this week? Or maybe you've made one in the past that you love and you'd like to share. (It can even be from an old blogpost or Instagram post!) Whatever it is, "Show Me The Mini"!!
