Not much intro today – I finished it! Year of minis #2 is all done – Bunnies & Berries Mini Quilt:
I’m pretty darned proud of this one. This has been a idea that’s been kicking around in my head for years. I fell in love with soft colors and sweet bunnies in the feature fabric by Lauren Nahs and picked up a few different fabrics from the her other collections. I thought they would be perfect for a little mini quilt featuring tiny dresden plates.
It’s just so cute! I’m glad that I went with the hand quilting, although it was a huge pain. I will think twice before using this white fabric for background or backing when I’m planning to hand quilt. Here’s a peek at the rather boring back, but the texture shows pretty nicely:
Once I finished binding the quilt, I decided it was high time I started hanging these up. I put up my first mini from this year and then hung the Berries & Bunnies mini too. My sewing room is starting to look pretty crafty!
