It’s 9″ by 12″ and I absolutely love how it turned out! It’s destined be a Christmas gift but I’m pretty convinced that I want to make a lap quilt using these fabrics. This was made using the 3″ Inklingo Winding Ways collection. I’m thinking if I do make the lap quilt, I may use the 4.5″ size instead — although maybe not. These little 3″ blocks were pure bliss to piece as every seam involved curved piecing and each block seemed to be done very quickly. So I’m thinking a lap quilt made up of the tiny blocks would be a lot of fun piecing. Thankfully I don’t have to decide for quite some time as there are lots of other projects I need to finish first before I even think about starting it.
I couldn’t resist taking this photo. As I was making the piece, I kept holding it up to the light because I was fascinated by this almost stained glass effect. Of course I did that and then promptly forgot to photograph the back before I put it with the backing and batting and got it ready to quilt.
I need to make at least two more mini quilts like this for Christmas gifts, but I’ve yet to decide on the design. One or two of them may have little stars. One might be a Drunkard’s Path design. Or maybe tiny clamshells. It’s going to be fun figuring that out and getting those done. I’d like to have them finished before mid-October.
Since I last posted we’ve had one heatwave, then a few days of cooler weather and now it’s back to a heatwave. We’re going to need gills to breathe if this humidity keeps up!
