February Mini - Flower Power 2



Time flies when I am working on a little improvisational collage.... feels like pure play.  Lots of Japanese fabrics and some sashiko.  

A little 12"x12" mini for February - 


I enjoy the challenge of using *only* little scraps from my scrap basket, some of which are too small to be useful for anything else.  The blue polka dots were from my grandma's stash. 



I pre-made hanging triangles and little labels for the year.  

A list of fellow mini-makers can be found on The Constant Quilter.  I really enjoy seeing what everyone has made.  Thanks Wendy for gathering us and inspiring us each month!  

xo gratefully, 

Cynthia

  6. No scrap it too small not to be used. I guess the smaller the more of a lovely challenge it is.
    I am full of awe of your order - preparing hanging triangles and labels and keeping them in a little plastic bag.

  12. You, my dear, are a natural at this lovely, mini collage-style of quilt. They look show-worthy! Combining all of these elements (including Grandma's blue polka-dots) and ending up with something so beautiful, fun, and pleasing to the eye is not something just any of us could do. And look at the beautiful quilting!!
    I was smiling at your neat bag of pre-made corners and labels. You are prepared! :)

  14. You keep coming up with these sensational little quilts! I love each one more than the last. You really have inspired me to try this method. Maybe for my March mini. I love that you have some of your grandmother's scraps in there. How sweet. Thanks for another great mini.

    The mix of hand and machine quilting gives it great texture.

  19. Everything about this little mini draws me in, from the use of scraps to the composition, and ending with the hand-sewing and the small labels and corners. You will have a great collection of minis when this year is done. Congratulations on a finish!
