Another mini quilt for my quilt gallery wall is done! I felt like playing with some strips of fabric, so I used my rotary cutter and cut freehand strips, making them wonky on purpose. Sewed them together, then drew a very basic leaf shop on my new piece of strippy fabric. I then machine stitched on the drawn line before cutting it out to give it some stability. Glue basting to the background was next, (isn't that background fabric just perfect for the subject matter?!!) followed by needleturn applique.I quilted it with more leaves and loops. A nice simple mini-quilt that was fun and easy to make!
I am nowhere up to date with my goal of a mini-quilt per week. I think I should kick things into overdrive and do a couple a week until I catch up!
The quilt gallery wall is slowly coming along....
