Mini Quilts Are Awesome

I finally finished that mini dresden rainbow quilt for my friend Terri!! I couldn't figure out how to quilt it, then it finally hit me... Lines down the seams! DUH. I used Aurifil so that it was nice and thin... I obviously can't stitch in the ditch properly. Shame.

I tried spiral quilting in the centre of the block... definitely going to have to try this on an entire quilt! It's a bit fiddly at the beginning, but it gets easier as you go on. Creates a really nice texture, even on this small bit. And because Terri's favourite colour is purple, I went with a solid purple for the binding. I'm so clever.

I hope this brightens up her sewing space! :)

And while we're on the subject of minis, I've completely forgotten to share the lovely little mini my lovely friend Christina gave me! It's one of her Ornate Mini Quilts and I love it! Orange? Yes. Grey? Yes. Dots? Yes! Thank you Christina :)

It's a beauty! I have started making more mini's in my life. It's nice to have a quick sense of finished satisfaction for my short-attention span brain.
