Mini Made

I finished up this mini quilt for the DSDQ swap#4 while I was at the GWSMQG Sunday Sewalong.
I've used Flea Market Fancy in this quilt and at the guild meeting, I got a good look at Sheridan's original FMF stash, to compare colours and see first hand those lovely prints that didn't make the reprint.
The solid is Kona Ash.


I made a single fold binding and machine sewed it down. I'm getting much better...I only missed two corners...easily and neatly fixed though!

I have one sad little reject block - I forgot to leave a 1/4" seam allowance along the diagonal,


so I am going to make that into a potholder today (I knew that Insul-Bright I bought all those years ago would eventually get a run) and I can use Leona's timely "insertion strip" tutorial

Hope your Tuesday is full of sewing...

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

  2. I love your little quilt. I was thinking about your poor reject block and I thought that you could sew it the wrong way together so with the points out and then add a triangle to the edges to square it up. Then if you add buttons to the points or something special it would hide the points and you would have a cute little mug rug or trading card.
    Wonderful job!!

  3. Love your little quilt, it turned out beautifully. Even the best of us forget things like seam allowance sometimes and a pot holder will be the perfect thing to turn the block into. xx
