So Julie showed me this challenge over at Amy Lou Who Sews. Simple enough - make a mini in two weeks, and post about it.
So I did! I was working on a disappearing 9 patch for a coworker, which I stupidly forgot to get photos of before he shipped it off to his mother in Puerto Rico, and as soon as I finished, I started messing around with scraps, and came out with some wonky interlocking stars.
Hey, this is pretty fun! It measures 12"x14.5", which I suppose makes it a slightly swelled mini-quilt. It could be mini-er, but I'm satisfied for a first try, eh?
I also played with some different free motion ideas. I did a sort-of seaweed type of wavy line situation that comes from the inner part of each star. I'm pretty happy with the look, but I'd like to try different types of free motion, too.
The back is a pretty little stripe from From Little Things (as are the materials on the front). Binding is Kona Azure.
(See the fun quilting on the back?)
Linking up to Amy Lou Who Sews - thanks for the challenge, Amy!
