One of my favorite things to do is to make a quilt using leftovers from another. When I made my Quilt of Valour maple leaf blocks awhile back, I had a whole bunch of HST blocks left over. I decided to trim them down to 2" and put them together with my red and cream scraps to make a mini! Here she is, Mini Churn Dash!
She is 23" x 28" and definitely too small to be a cuddle quilt, but I do think she'll work as a table topper or a wall hanging! She's too small to hang out on the clothesline for one of my windy pics, so I had to settle for the woodpile.
The deck is looking very weary from the winter, but the mini brightened it up!
This is what the deck looked like earlier in the week when I finished the flimsy.
I loved the way the quilt top looks beside the melting snow...
Although the deck is almost clear of snow now, there are still a few white patches in the background. Unfortunately, I hear a rumor that a snow storm is on the horizon for early next week.
I used a cross-hatch to quilt it. I often use this when making traditional quilts.
Nice to have a finish, even a small one! Thanks for coming by. It's a great day for quilting!
