Friday Finish - A Wee Bit of Tula...

Mini minis. It's an addiction, people. There's something so satisfying about going from idea to finished quilt in a few hours. Love it. Lisa In Port Hope and I got to chatting about Glamp Stitchalot and decided to do a little swap. 

When I saw that Lisa has recently added some Tula Pink Eden to her stash, it seemed like a perfect chance to use some of the scraps from Tula Tigers for T. It just goes to show that you don't need to sew big stuff to use large scale prints! Those strips are ½ inch finished. Yup. Crazy town.
I couldn't resist fussy cutting that little tiger for the centre. And since I wasn't really able to show off those lovely large Eden tigers in the log cabin strips, I thought one of them would be great for the back!
 And the quilting? Spirals, of course... to soften all those wee little strips.
 It seems to work for the tiger too!
 I used Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts' tutorial on how to bind tiny things. It's a great tutorial!
I love the play of light and dark of a log cabin.

Honestly, I should make more of these!

Lisa was very happy with this little lovely.

As was I with this cheerful springy mini mini!
 Look at those pinwheels! So tiny. And FMQ wind? Perfect!

I'm linking up with TGIFF @ Quilt Matters as well as Finish Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts.

    1. I thought you were on a bloggy vacation??

  3. Love that tiny Tula Tiger in the center. Those are some crazy small strips. And I love how the quilting gives the pinwheels that blowing in the breeze feeling.

  4. This is little piece of gorgeousness! Love the tula and tiger touches! Bet you are getting excited for Glamp Stitchalot!

  5. Beautiful! The mini mini craze doesn't seem like it is in any danger of slowing down. :)

  6. So pretty! I love when the quilting looks great on both sides.

  7. Lovely! I love the spiral quilting! and the tiger is perfect for the back. The size doesn't phase me, but I think I much prefer tiny piecing to giant piecing. Everything is nice and tidy that way :)

  8. What perfect and fun little minis! Tula's tiger makes a great back on your Jenn!

  9. So cute! Love that Tula. You both got a great swap! Love your blog header, by the way! Thanks for linking up with TGIFF!

  10. Love, love, love the pinwheel mini!!!!!

  11. I love the tiny tiger in the center block!

  12. They're both gorgeous! I really love the spiral quilting and the way it softens the log cabin block.

  13. That log cabin is sure pretty.... I never would have thought of using a large print fabric for something tiny, but it looks so good! And the mini is super cute, too. Love the windy quilting!

  14. Neat! I like the way you quilted it.
