The good news is that I have been crazy busy longarm quilting, the bad news is that my person sewing time has shrunk drastically!
Still wanting to have something to show for the month, I got the bright idea to whip up a mini quilt for myself. It's the perfect quick and easy way to get some creative satisfaction....NOT!
I now have some serious respect for all those mini quilts I see people whipping up! I always thought they were awesome, but I had no idea how much work went into such a little thing!
From over analyzing every detail, to realizing that a lot of decisions are more critical at this scale, I spent a full two days designing, creating, re-designing & recreating this guy. It kept trying to grow on me and I had to finally design a bed quilt pattern from one of the alternate layouts, so that my brain would let me think small on this.
It may not have been the quick & easy I set out for, but it was tons of fun & I plan on doing it again soon!
Be sure to keep an eye out for the big quilt pattern. It's going to be AWESOME!!! (if I do say so myself)
