Mini take one


The mini quilt I shared the other day for the Heather Ross swap was actually not the first mini I made. At first I thought I might like to use the new line of HR fabrics and created this little quilt, but I wasn’t in love with it. I decided to return to the drawing board and come up with an idea that used a wide array of her fabrics, and was a bit more colorful. I thought I’d should still go ahead and share some photos of my first draft, which I gave to my friend Jessee for her mini wall.

Heather Ross mini quilt swap







A few months back I signed up for my very first mini quilt swap on instagram. It was a Heather Ross themed swap. You make a mini quilt using Heather Ross fabrics, and send it off to a partner. I used Modern Handcraft’s free tutorial for making modern hexies. I love the technique, it looks so cool once its quilted, and I think I need to make another one to keep. I decided to make a scrappy binding too (my first one!) I took some photos of my finished quilt that I will post soon, as well as photos of what I received which was an gorgeous mini with tons of handmade extras.
