This month for the "Schnibbles" parade, we didn't actually do a Schnibbles quilt! We were challenged to make one of Thimble Blossoms mini quilts. That was fine by me, since I love minis. I own a couple of the mini patterns and had been looking forward to making another one. You might remember the Mini Spools quilt I made back in January.
I decided on the "Mini Swoon" pattern. Each block is 8" and the quilt finishes at 19" x 19". It's actually a lot bigger than I thought it would be!
I struggled with the corner stone fabrics of all things! I now wish I used all one fabric and not gone "scrappy." JoAnne of Patriotic Quilter had the brilliant idea to fussy cut flags for each little 1" square....I just didn't have the right size/color fabric with flags. :( Oh well...it is done and I'm happy with it!
This red star fabric is probably from the 90's and even though it was prewashed, it bled just a tiny bit when I washed the finished quilt. I even had a color catcher in there with it!
It really doesn't show up in these pictures...but the background fabric is just a little pink-ish around some of the edges of the star...
After seeing these pics, I'm realizing that it's light enough that no one will likely ever notice. :)
