Mini finishes…

It is definitely not thank goodness my holiday is finished, but after 4 weeks of travel and 2 weeks of the flu, it is kinda nice to be back to normal again. And super nice to have a little finish to show…

The Perth Modern Quilt Guild have been having a modern-mini challenge. Part 1 was a Pinterest competition – basically you had to create and link up a board with 10 modern minis on it for inspiration. Part 2 was actually making one.

I started two, finished one, and decided to bind a WIP which isn’t exactly modern but fits the mini bill closely enough…

This one was part of a Sweet 16 FMQ templates retreat that I went to back in March.

Here’s the one that I designed taking inspiriting from a Weeks Ringle quilt featured in the book Quilting with a Modern Slant. Poor light but the contrast shows up the extreme FMQ. :) I’m quite pleased with how this one turned out, although it did seem to shrink a little in the wash. I was tossing up between plain white or the ‘selvedge fabric’ binding – I think I made the right choice! Hope you agree…

I have one more finish but I’m saving that for TGIFF next week :) Can’t show it all at once now can I?

  1. What incredible quilting! Love both of your minis…. But especially the second one. Love what you have done with the quilting and such a cute binding, too! Thanks for hosting the linky party!

  2. Wow, your quilting is fab.u.lous! I love how you extend the design on the second one with your quilting. Your finishes are beautiful, Laura! Love that selvage fabric too — where did you score that?

  3. Love the white with the multi-colored mini pieces-super cute. Thanks for having a link up party; I so appreciate it and I get to meet so many new artists… Like YOU !~!

  4. It’s hardly fair that you came home only to be sick. I think that calls for another 4 weeks travelling :)
    Hope you’re feeling better.
    And cute little minis
