Chakra Mini Quilt - Front (12wt)

Chakra Mini Quilt {Finished}

I liked getting the opportunity to create this mini quilt again, and it was fun to design new interior motifs for the chakras.

I still think the yellow chakra is my favorite; it’s just so ornate and interesting and the color just seems to glow from the design.

For comparison, here are the two versions side by side (the newest finish on the left and original “Quilt the Life Into It” on the right).

The Chakra Mini Quilt finished at 14-inches wide by 45-inches long, and it took me 11 hours to make including design / doodling time.

My post earlier this week, Chakra Mini Quilt WIP, has details on the process on how the quilt was made, if you are interested. 🙂

Linking up with Finish it Friday.

    Boy you’re good at this kind of quilting! Version 2.0 looks just as terrific as the first time around!

    Beautiful work. I liked seeing them both side by side. The same, but different. The quilting does make it gorgeous and the design work inside the motifs is quite lovely.

  22. Lisa says:

    It’s so interesting to see the two quilts side by side. They are both beautiful. I like the simplicity of the original but I also like the intricacy of the newer one. What a lot of fun you must have had making each one. I love the challenges you set for yourself Yvonne as the results are so striking.

    Love the texture created with your quilting. Seeing them side by side made me realize the differences. Beautiful finish!

  26. Jasmine says:

    This is absolutely gorgeous. I think the yellow is my favorite too.

  27. I really liked being able to compare the 2 minis side by side to see how you changed up the quilting for each chakra. I really like the purple and green ones.

  28. So beautiful, Yvonne, and fun to see the two versions side by side. I love all of the motifs you chose and how they work together.

  29. Pam L says:

    Yvonne, I finally got a chance to see the quilt on a computer screen. I usually see all my mail on my iphone and it just didn’t do it justice. I am in awe over the stitching you did in this quilt!
    Your thread work is gorgeous! I can’t imagine changing thread that many times. It’s just beautiful. Great job!

  30. eleanor says:

    I like them both! The blue chakra I think is my favorite, very vibrant. Whole cloth, all thread work is still on my to-do list.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
