I have joined the Mini Quilt Monday Flickr Group. I was sent an invitation to join and I have taken up the offer as I think it will help to extend and practice my machine quilting skills. What I also like about this group is that there are few rules, if any. You can post as often as you like, and not necessarily on a Monday either!
My weekends are usually very busy so posting a new Mini Quilt each Monday is not going to be happening here. Realistically I am going to aim for one Mini Quilt a month.
This is my first Mini Quilt:
The printed fabrics were reclaimed out of my small scrap (but too good to throw out) box.
The finished Mini Quilt measures 16.5 inches x 27.5 inches.
I have issues with straight line quilting. My straight lines must be straight and nothing less. This involves a lot of measuring and marking and stress. However, for this quilt I forced myself not to mark any of the lines before quilting. I had a lot of fun making it and I think it has turned out just fine.
You too can join the Mini Quilt Monday group. It is a fun way to extend and practice new skills and share ideas.
