Here is my pretty 18 by 23" mini modern quilt.
This month the Island Batik Ambassadors were challenged to make a miniature quilt.
I grabbed my scrap bag and pulled some pretty colors and some low volume prints along with a neutral.
My goal is a modern mini! The small squares finish at 3/4".
I tried out a magnifying glass for my Janome M7. I think it will be great for another project.
I love my new mat by Prairie Spirit Alpaca.
It really makes pressing without distortion possible.
The blocks finish at 4 1/2"
I like adding a few blank squares.
I layered with Hobbs Heirloom batting. I brought to my Handi Quilter Capri. I love quilting my small quilts on my stationary machine. I stitched diagonal lines for simple and straightforward quilting . I use small quilts like this for table mats. I may hang it, but truly it will probably live on a table.
Thanks for stopping by! Next month: Diamond rectangles with Studio 180 Designs.
