Yep, I did it again! I signed up for another program/club this year. I am a sucker for getting kits in the mail and or a BOM!
Moving right along, this is a yearly club of mini quilts. You can view them or sign up here if interested. It is for 6 quilts, one every other month, for a year.
I signed up because I thought that in doing all my big quilt projects, I would like to do a small project, something that I could get done rather quickly and feel accomplished. I also liked that these mini quilts will all be done in Civil War Reproduction Fabrics. That way, when I go to display them, they will have some cohesiveness about them.
This is mini project is called " Mams's Scrapbag". I was able to make it in two nights. My only issue with this one is that I didn't not square up my blocks, so my center came out about 2" bigger around on all sides. So, since there was only enough brown border for the smaller version, I adapted four corner posts from some leftover scraps from the center.
Home machine quilting was another reason I opted to do some of these mini quilts, as I can work on these on my machine. I opted to do a cross hatch for this mini, and the picture below is the one direction.
Here is a close up of the cross hatching quilting showing both ways on the mini quilt.
This is a up close look at the finished quilt with the binding all done.
And the final version. Looks like I need to iron it, as it is been folded in my sewing bag from the weekend.
