Mini Quilt Monday Link-up :: AMH Stained Glass
Welcome to Mini Quilt Monday the LINK-UP edition! I'm so excited to be creating a place to share small creations and inspiration - thanks for stopping by and hopefully joining in!
So this is my Anna Maria Horner Stained Glass mini, I've been sharing my work on IG and getting feedback. I used up some 1.5" strips that I had left over from a bigger quilt and just made small log cabin blocks. I tried to keep each block in a loose color scheme - warm, cool, light, dark. I got the awesome suggestion to use skinny black sashing from an IG friend and I am completely in love with it. The black really creates a beautiful contrast with the bright AMH colors. Love. Sigh.
Right now this top measures 19.5"x25" before quilting/biding.
Now I'm thinking about quilting and I'm at a loss so I'm going to look at it for a few days and see if any brilliant ideas pop into my head. Suggestions HAPPILY taken so if you have a quilting idea please share in the comments. Please!
So now for the link-up: there are so many wonderful mini quilt swaps going on (especially on IG) that I feel like I can't keep up with them all and most have their own hashtags so unless you follow someone in that specific swap or know the hashtag you might might be missing a lot of fun. I feel like I am, plus I know there is a whole world outside of IG (WHAT?! REALLY?! ;-) so I thought it would be fun to have a spot to share all our fun creations online. I couldn't find one so I'm making my own. I'm happy to have mini's in any state of completion, pillows, mug rugs - anything small.
Thanks fo everyone who helped spread the word and entered my mini qiveaway last week! I had my in-house randome number generator choose and the winner is Elizabeth who blogs at Pieceful Life.
