I am happy to join in on the Quilt it Modern blog tour sponsored by Riley Blake! I requested a selection of pinks, a couple of shades of off white and a beige from their Cotton Solids collection. I guess I was feeling springy and inspired by peonies at the time!
I created this mini from a self drafted foundation pattern. As my readers know, I am a paper piecing fanatic. It’s my favorite way to piece anything and everything! I had fun manipulating the pattern sections until I settled on this layout. I quilted in 1/4″ spaced lines with pink Aurifil thread and accentuated that arrowhead shape with a single line of echo quilting.
I haven’t made a mini quilt in awhile primarily because I don’t have a great mini wall, like so many quilters do, to display them. But they are awfully fun to make because you are able to explore a design idea without committing to a full quilt and, let’s face it, it sure makes basting less of a headache!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you will be back!
