Recently my friend Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl recently posted a tiny quilt (only measure 3" square) to her instagram and asked if anyone wanted to swap for it. I was lucky enough to say YES! first, and little did I know it was but a rabbit hole of mini-mini-mania. If you're interested in joining in, check out the #miniminiquiltswap on IG and look for ones available to swap, or just ask someone if they'd like to swap with you! Everyone is so friendly.
I started with using some 1.5" hst blocks I had leftover from this quilt, and then also used a leftover block from the Wedding Medallion quilt I made earlier this year--both perfectly suited to making itty bitty quilts!
|This one went to Kitty at Night Quilter, and just before I mailed it I added some fmq swirls to the center. See the after photo on my IG|
|The back, before I added some fmq swirls. About 3.5" square.|
|This one went to Michelle on IG, about 4.5" square.|
|Tiny mini quilt back.|
|This one went to Yvonne, it measures 3.5" square.|
|I totally chose this mathy background for Yvonne, but it's awesomeness is lost in the size of this mini. It is Metrics by Brigitte Heitland for Zen chic.|
And then it seemed like I was done...until I started making FMQ paisley wholecloth mini-minis (I'll post photos of those soon)! Apparently that is my niche, and now I'm signed up to swap with 9 more people, hahaha. I'll be at my machine quilting those up if you need me...
