Modern Mini Challenge



I finished my mini quilt last night, so thought I would share today. I mainly wanted to make this quilt to practice the blanket stitch on my sewing machine. Then I hand quilted with white perle cotton, size 8 around the dresses and clouds, the clothesline is navy hand quilting thread. Perle cotton is a little hard to source locally, I could only find neutral colors so far. The border was just scraps sewn together and attached to the sides, I didn't plan any of the colors first. I wanted something bright and fun-this was supposed to go in my laundry room, but I might need to put this in my sewing room instead. Ellison Lane quilts is having a mini challenge starting today through next Friday. I've decided to link this over to her blog, can't wait to see all the great minis that will be posted over the weekend.
