I originally began this mini quilt as a table runner/ square for a swap in the Cincy MQG. It didn't make it to that swap because my kid took some scissors to it. FANtastic. Well, I repaired the damage this week and finished it up just in time for the Mini Quilt Challenge at AmyLouWho.
The design is inspired by this quilt, just miniaturized. If you are interested in the dimensions, I cut the main squares to 3 inches. Then I sewed a strip of the linen 1.5 inches by 3 to one side, then another strip of linen 1.5 inch by 4 on the next side. Arrange them like so, 6 rows of 6 blocks makes a 21" square mini.
The main part of the back is a Joel Dewberry print I've had forever that I absolutely hated until I used it here. Love it when that happens.
The solids are mostly from my swap package from Anna, and I added my linen and the pink Echino print. I had the Celebrate Color contest in my mind all along with this one too. The yellow is really the only conventional fall color here, but all of it together looks very fallish to me and I love the scheme.
Go check out a whole lot of other lovely minis here. And if you are visiting from the mini party, you can see another mini I've made here.
