My friend Jenn @A Quarter Inch from the Edge dipped her toes into the waters of the #miniminiquiltswap and I couldn’t wait to swap with her! I know that she loves selvages and teal, and I decided to play with a bit of quilting to make the design for the “front” of the mini quilt, although I think in the end I might prefer the “back” of this one the most.
I failed to think about how the binding would eat into the edges of my quilted design (oops), but I think it turned out well enough anyway. My goal was to kind of re-created my Triangle Transparency pattern just using teal thread!
I also made a mini mini quilt for Mary @Quilting is in my Blood. She mentioned that she likes turquoise and the pick up sticks blocks that Lisa @Sunlight in Winter Quilts recently featured on her blog.
I really like how the angled cross hatch quilting turned out.
The larger mini mini is actually pretty big; it finished at 5-inches square. The smaller one is 4-inches square.
I got these shipped on Monday, and I hope they are fun little treats to arrive in the mail for Jenn and Mary during this holiday season. I know that life can feel hectic during this time of year, and I hope we can all have fun moments of delight and surprise, whether due to a fun and unexpected treat in the mailbox or from the joy of being with friends and family. Spending time working on these sweet mini mini quilts was a fun retreat for me. 🙂
