Mini Mania - Modern Traditional Challenge April 21 2014, 3 Comments
I have only been slightly obsessed with mini quilts this past year... so when Timeless Treasures and Dear Stella announced their Modern Traditional Mini Quilt Challenge, I jumped at the opportunity to make something fun! I made thirty-six 3" assorted churndash blocks and arranged them in color order diagonally across the quilt with the dark backgrounded blocks off-center. I have been wanting to make little mini churndash blocks for awhile, so this was the perfect time!
My favorite detail is the binding. I used scraps from the top of the quilt and sewed them together in color order. I put the pink through the yellow on the bottom and green through purple on the left side. I also threw in a light blue confetti dot on the bottom right corner for kicks.
