This little mini quilt is finished.
I showed it in its earlier stages here.
It was made with half-square triangles of warm and cool colours, using Kaffe Fassett fabrics like these:
The small blocks were placed alternating to form an offset diamond pattern.
I decided to quilt it with straight-line stitching along the warm colour ‘stripes’, emphasising the diamond shapes, and leaving the cooler sections unquilted.
I used a pink and white spot for the backing and bound it with a hot pink solid.
So that’s finished and now ready to send to my Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap partner and hope that she likes it!
This time next week I will be on my way to the USA with a group of friends. We will be going to the Houston International Quilt Festival which was the prime motivator for the trip, but also visiting a few other places on the way. I’ll try and post some photos on here, because I’m sure it’s going to be the best time ever!
Today though a little colour in your day, fresh from our garden:
