Today I made my 1st mini quilt and pieced back. I have seen many people making mini quilts and doll quilts and I have always wondered WHY?? Well today I found out. Fast, fun, and you get to try new techniques on a small scale. Here is what I made…pretty simple, but it is a start :)
This is the back…
I am going to bind it in the strip print.
Tomorrow during the CGQC Spring Sewing Party I will be making another one for the NAME THAT QUILT give away. I have just enough fabric.
I have decided to keep this one because:
- I don’t have any mini quilts and I think this one will be cute on my wall.
- because I just think it is so darn cute!
- because I can :)
The best part of this quilt and the one I am making tomorrow is the fact that everything I used to make them with is scraps. The charms were left over from the BIG quilt and there were not enough to do anything with. The white fabric is left over strips from another project. The strip fabric on the back is the tail cut off of the binding on the BIG quilt. I love that I found a way to use up the scraps. Oh, even the batting is from scraps. I took 2 strips from the excess of the BIG quilt and pieced them together and then cut the size I needed :)
