Mini Quilt Adventure

Friday I got the urge to start a new quilt. I don't know why, but I didn't have anything really lined up to enter in our county fair this coming week and I knew I didn't have time to make a queen size quilt!

I saw this pattern in the July 2003 Quick Quilts magazine and it was 55" square with 6" blocks. I have a collection of black and white fabrics and tons of brights but then I thought what if... I made it smaller. My quilt is 15" square with 1.5" blocks! I finished it today. It has 336 pieces not counting borders and binding and the littlest pieces are 1/2" finished.

On Saturday I also did another 5k walk and did this one in 44 minutes, 59 seconds, but it was much more level than the last one and I had trained more.

Amazing little quilt - I'd say it was an adventure - getting the pieces to work when they are that small. Thanks for sharing.

Hey, Julie, do you want to do the Breast Cancer 3-Day with me next year?

That's a great mini quilt and I love how you incorporated the color splash into the scrappy binding.
