Make Modern magazine sponsored a mini mini quilt challenge on Instagram and I took a break from a couple of big projects to make this 5" square quilt.
As many of you know, I babysit kids during the school year, and one day one of the girls arrived wearing these fantastic pants.
|This isn't very clear, but it was hard to keep her still long enough to take a picture!|
When it came time to stitch it, I drew the flower roughly with chalk, then free motion quilted the whole outline before filling in each petal. I really love the texture of the dense quilting in the center of the flower!
If I were to do it again, I'd probably fill in every other petal, then go back and fill in the remaining ones as I found that there was a little bit of bunching as I worked my way around. You can just pick it out in the top middle of the picture above.
I filled in the background with a micro stipple.
When I finished, this little quilt was anything but flat!
I was going to add this mini mini to the #miniminiquiltswap on Instagram, but I decided to offer it here instead. If you'd like to make a mini mini to swap for this one, just let me know in the comments :)
Linking up with Finish it Up Friday, TGIFF and Can I Get a Whoop Whoop.
