mini quilt

vasu_texasJuly 10, 2012

I'm bitten by the mini quilt bug! Here's one I made for a mini quilt swap on Flickr. It measures about 19x19 inches.

I'm happy with the Dresdens but I wish I had planned the quilting a bit better.

Oooh! Love the batiks in such pretty colors. The pretty spiral is accented well by the quilting you chose.

I love the fabrics too!!! That design would also look great as a table topper or bed runner.

Thank you all for you comments. I can't take all the credit for color selection - I used bits from a jelly roll of Tonga Treats "Gelato" and the background is Kona cotton "snow". I still have most of the jelly roll - still looking for patterns & ideas for a bigger quilt.

Making the Dresden was really nice - no stress about carefully cutting and joining to complete the "plate" and making sure that the plate lays flat. In fact, I cut some of the pieces free hand so I could adjust the width to get the right curve.

Rosa, I do want to do a longish piece to fit a narrow section of the wall in my living room. I guess I can double it as a table runner.

Another mini I made with blue scraps. I just cut out triangles of various sizes and randomly places them to make a pattern I liked. Added some yellow for interest.
I'm really happy how this turned out.

Love the wide open design and your use of color. I'd call that an art quilt, but it doesn't look very mini in the picture?

I'm on a blue and white (or cream) roll. It is 20"x28" - not very small but still small enough to find wall space in my living room.

I agree with another, your quilt is an art quilt and nicely done. The mini is lovely and the wall hanging is cool (showing my age) Applause to both!

Great job on your minis!
I have a small wallhanging that I made but still haven't finished quilting it. Perhaps seeing yours will motivate me to get it out and finish it!
