I'm back with a new little mini. Just in time too!
It's my April goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
I just realize I need to stop sewing and blog something other than
the beginning and end of my goal.
I have plenty of other things going on, I just need to slow down a bit.
I'll give it a good try in May.
Now on to my little mini quilt adventure.
The little mini is for Fab Little Quilt Swap
I stalked my partner as best I could and just sat on the information for a long time.....too long.
Nothing I could make would be wonderful enough.
She does fabulous work and has exquisite taste.
I headed to the swap photo pool with two design ideas.
I decided on making the paper pieced design.
I had to just jump in and hope it would be something she likes.
I used Anna Maria Horner's free spinning star block pattern.
I reduced it in size to end up with six inch finished spinning stars.
I went with a low volume background and the circles in colors I thought my partner might like.
This made the spinning stars become circles or rings, instead of the stars.
I started out with one green circle, then realized I had enough greens to expand the idea.
I had a lot of fun digging through my stash looking for as many
shades of green and blue I could find.
I was surprised I had so many.
Then, what to do with the ninth circle?
I ended up repeating a "pie" from each circle to complete number nine.
Here's a peek at the backside.
My favorite litte circle/ring.
This shade of green is so calming.
Finished quilt in the light.
The whole little quilt,
and yes, those are my tootsies.
A little closer look.
