Yup. I'm addicted. Another mini mini.
Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, at our very first Q-Squared Quilt Therapy session, Q-D brought a certain quilt to work on. When I hadn't seen it in forever in a day (much less completed), I asked after the "Hot Chocolate" quilt. She looked mystified. Apparently, what I remembered as paper pieced mugs of hot chocolate were, in fact, mittens.
And thus, the idea for a mini mini was born! I got to digging about on the internets and then I found the fabulous paper piecing patterns of Tiny Toffee Designs. My goodness, she has some tiny, tiny paper piecing patterns! Given how tiny these pieces are, it seemed best to do a little colouring to keep things straight.
Carolyn Friedlander prints. So it was my goal to get lots into this wee quilt.
Yvonne @ Quiting JetGirl's tutorial for selvage binding, but none of the CF prints used in the mini mini actually featured her name. Ack.
I carefully positioned CF's name for maximum readability. Q-D cares about that sort of thing! And I care that this fabric was "Kona Coordinated" ☺
I'm linking up today with TGIFF @ Quilt Journal as well as with Finish Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts.
P.S We swapped last night at our MMQG meeting. Q-D loved it! But I bet she'll leave a comment saying as much! ☺
What a great little mini quilt. It's very tiny. I've never seen selvedge used as binding before, interesting.ReplyDelete
What a great story! The mini mini is adorable.ReplyDelete
I love it! What a teeny tiny mini mini! The cup is perfect and you nailed it...nailed it Jenn!ReplyDelete
Oh, I love it, Jenn! And perfect use of a selvage binding. The wavy steam quitled lines were actually the first thing I noticed and I think a perfect touch.ReplyDelete
That little tiny heart is so cute! Very nice make.ReplyDelete
It is too cute! I love how tiny it is, everything is just so much cuter and fun when it's mini sized. :) I'm glad your friend loved it, it's wonderful!ReplyDelete
This is so very mini.... And so very pretty! I can see how this kind of project would be a good fit with nap time sewing. Love the fabrics you chose! And the binding is da bomb!ReplyDelete
love your little cuppa with the adorable little heart! And your right, sometimes it just feels good to have projects that you can easily finish!ReplyDelete
Awesome job! So glad I was able to see it in person last night. Amazed that you cut off the selvedge of unused fabric....true love.ReplyDelete
That's a cuppa cuteness!ReplyDelete
Very cute! I love the "steamed" quilting!ReplyDelete
I love the mini mini quilt hashtag on Instagram, they're all so adorable! This turned out great, I've never seen selvage binding before but it's perfect!ReplyDelete
tiny is cute and yours is no exception! well done!ReplyDelete
I do love my mini "Cuppa". Thank you so much. The story behind it makes it that much more special. I really enjoy making mini minis!!!ReplyDelete
How cute is that?!? The tinier, the cuter!ReplyDelete
Mini minis are perfect for detailed little patterns like this. The wavy steam lines are just right, and your tiny pieces show dedication to the cause.ReplyDelete
So modern baby monitors now have pictures as well as sound? How cool is that!
Bet she loved it! It's adorable!ReplyDelete
