Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts is hosting a “Modern Mini Challenge” and if you haven’t stopped by, you NEED to! I adore mini quilts and there are so many beauties in the link-up.
I decided to link-up my sweet, little pot-holders that I made over Christmas for a swap (my readers may remember seeing these before). The pattern is by Alyssa at Pile O Fabric and I scaled it down, left out the sashing and sewed all the triangles together.
This was really a labor of love, because the pieces were so tiny and once I sewed them together, there was a HUGE bubble in the middle where all the seams meet (since they were never supposed to be sewn together that way). I almost gave up , but once I quilted and steamed them within an inch of their life, they looked great. You can see that the right one is warped a little in the middle, but I compensated when I made the one on the left, and it is straighter.
I made a pocket in the back and used some cute Sheri Berry Christmas fabric from my stash.
I said it in the original post, but I STILL want to make an entire quilt out of these blocks!
Thanks for stopping by!
