Mini Quilt Monday :: Alison Glass Fractured Mini

Good Morning! This week I have my mini for the Alison Glass Mini Quilt Swap all finished up and ready to share. Last week I shared how I made these blocks and it was so fun rearranging them and trying to decide which one looked best!

In the end I came back to my initial vision of fractured blocks and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. Even though each Alison Glass collection has it's own specific palette they all look gorgeous together.  I tried to vary my lights and darks/warms and cools to get a good variety within each block. This project started with a FE bundle of 27 AG fabrics and I made sure to include each fabric at least once. I also ended up with enough blocks to make a second bonus mini - for me!

I used an Alison Glass print for the border than is white-on-white to give the eyes a little rest. I think this photo was the best I could do on capturing that subtle pattern. I like the way the white border framed the colorful blocks and really made them pop even more. I did some dense straight line quilting and bound it in my partner's favorite color. It's going in the mail to her today and I hope she loves it as much as I do!

I'd love it if you felt like sharing a mini or other small project by linking up this week and thanks for stopping by!
