In April, an international Quilting Jetgirl patron unlocked their mini mini quilt reward. When I asked if they had any preferences, it was noted that they like my transparency designs and that their favorite color is orange. I immediately went to my bin of orange prints and started tinkering around with options based on what I had on hand.
And a few hours later, I had a finished mini mini quilt! I love that due to their size (this mini mini finished at 6 1/4″ square edge to edge), they can be made quickly.
I took the finished mini mini on a tour around the yard to see how it compared in size and vibrancy with some of the blooming orchids before shipping it away. These orchids are the smallest of the bunch.
This is probably the photograph that shows the mini mini in as close to true color as I was able to capture. I opted for crosshatch quilting; denser in the center and moving out to be less dense at the edges of the quilt.
More than showing off the back of the mini quilt, which features Speckled from Ruby Star Society, the photograph shows just how large these particular orchids are!
Orange has really been speaking a lot to me lately, so it was doubly fun getting to use it in this mini mini quilt. What color have you found to be using the most in your quilts right now?
