|Night Camping mini quilt, measures 12" x 12"|
Today I'm sharing the last two of my mountain camping quilt blocks turned mini quilts! For those new here, I designed this quilt block because I couldn't find any dome tent blocks. You can find the FREE pattern in my Craftsy store.

I quilted this one with matching Aurifil threads, with lots of paisleys and swirls to give it a more ethereal feel. I have been enjoying quilting paisleys so much lately!

I'm so happy to be keeping this quilt! It hangs next to my sewing room door, so I get to look at it frequently.

The second one I finished is the Purple Tent mini, this one for my daughter (3.5). She asked for a purple tent, and when I asked about quilting she said, "sorta like your tent" referring to the yellow tent above. So I put a paisley on the tent and then played around with FMQ matchstich quilting on the rest of the quilt.

Honestly I wasn't thrilled with the paisley, I like to try something new with every one (no two are the same!), but the tiny clamshells were really tricky and turned out sloppy. My favorite part is the sky! Dense quilting really made the clouds puff out. I also like the way the mountains look, but wonder if the right side of them need some quilting.

Again, I used all Aurifil threads, using whatever color I had that was closest (I only have one shade of purple Aurifil thread!).
