Hooray! Even though this project sidelined me from other finishes, it was a LOT of fun and I would most definitely do it again. I say that even before receiving my quilt in the Modify Tradition Mini Quilt Swap.
Back (which I still might like better than the front!)
The fabric is Anna Maria Horner Good Folks Bohemian - two charm packs that I'd been
saving for the perfect project. The background is a Kona Cotton but I don't know which one (bad quilter, bad!). I was certain the snowballs were going to be made with white or off-white, so no one was more surprised that I when the yellow jumped up and said, "Me! Me!" The binding fabric, I picked up at my guild's Garage Sale because I love polka dots and it was another surprise fit. Not sure what it is, though - maybe Michael Miller?
As for the quilting, the snowballs have a flowery motif (done in a cream thread - Aurifil), and the rest is meandered/stippled with a variegated thread by Signature. The star points got very small stipples and the rest, a bigger stipple. Left the star centres unquilted and they pop up nicely as a result.
It measures 22.5" x 22.5" and I love it. I hope my partner does, too!!

Hi there, I've just found your blog. This is an amazing mini-quilt - so much work on the quilt top. I think I might agree with you - I just love the quilt back (but then I have a bit of a 'thing' for less intricate quilts).ReplyDelete
