It's nearly the end of January, and for probably the first time ever, my monthly mini has been waiting patiently for a couple weeks to make its debut on the blog.
Following up on Janet O.'s "baggie challenge" from last fall, I found another baggie of mostly red and white tiny flying geese, mostly finished and ready for pressing. They made up into this placemat size little quilt.
The narrow blue strips separating the columns of geese are leftover 1" strips from cutting the layer cake pieces for the hatchet blocks shown in my previous post here. Border and binding are from some miscellaneous less-than-a-fat-quarter pieces in the stash. It all appears a little bit wonky in the photo, just as it does hanging on the design wall - keeping it humble but happy!
Here is the back, made with a found piece of an older toile, bordered with another small piece from the stash.
For more mini quilts, check Wendy's blog The Constant Quilter at the end of each month where she posts links to a growing number of mini-makers blog posts. Thank you Wendy for continuing this Monthly Mini Challenge for yet another year!
