Since I recently posted about this quilt, I’m not going to reiterate too much, but I’m entering my mini-mini in the Art Quilt category. The design is based on the Bloomin’ Pillow instructions by Cori @ Hey Let’s Make Stuff. I’ve made a few of these for various things, and it’s really a fun way to work!
This particular version is 4.5″ x 4.5″. During the process of making it, the idea popped into my head to thread sketch a lamp post on it, and I couldn’t get it out of my head. It took a leap of faith to possibly mess up the pretty background, but sewing so small means at least the experiments aren’t costly on your time if it messes it up! haha
All the texture in the blues ended up feeling like a stormy, windy day, so I named it “Light in the Storm” and it was really fitting for what was going on during the time.
