INSPIRATION IMAGINATION CREATION
Those are four mini mini quilts I have made for the Make Modern Magazine mini mini quilt challenge (#miniminiquilt on Instragram).
I was looking into my box of unused little pieces when my eyes fell on the four-patch blocks I sew for House Placemats I made in March 2015, but finally discarded.
Crafted Appliqué is a new method invented by Lara of BuzzinBumble. I have decided to try it with my tea cup pattern (the same that is on my Tea in the Rose Garden mug rugs). The cup handle is very thin and I wanted to verify how easy it would be to sew it. On my mug rugs, I sew the appliqués with the blanket stitch to keep them into place and to make sure that the fabric would not fray.
This house is high in colors. The door and the window frames were carefully decorated. The number of windowpanes add even more richness to the deep red frames. Each window has its elegant flower box. The roof, with its sandy-beige color, contrast beautifully the busy design of the front wall. The minimalist front garden was planned as to not distract the eyes from this magnificence.
This is a small quilt: 7″ x 7″. And a coordinated card. For the appliqués, i.e. the maple leaves, I have used Lara’s Crafted Appliqué method (#craftedapplique).
