Welcome to March mini quilt installment! Scroll to the bottom to enter to win your own strawberry mini…
The fun of the mini quilt challenge #12minisin12months, hosted by Knot and Thread is continuing over on Instagram, and tho I missed my February mini, due to wedding organisation busyness, I did get my March mini done- a luscious strawberry to continue the fruity theme from January.
My fabrics are a lovely scrappy mix of fabrics from Little Dolly, First Romance, Sarah Jane, Bunnies and Blossoms, with some low volume borders that come from a sweet Spotlight print.
I wanted to add an extra cute touch, so I made a couple of strawberry buttons from oven bake clay. My sculpting needs work, but overall I was pretty chuffed with how they turned out! From a distance the imperfections aren’t so obvious…
They behave exactly like proper buttons, and I have plans to work on more of these, as cute buttons can be really hard to find.
And the back is a sweet strawberry print from Riley Blake. I do seem to have quite a collection of strawberry prints!
I thought I’d share some of my favourites from the hashtag for you…I love the diversity of them all. Makers are labeled.
I was lucky enough to see Samantha’s mini in process while I was visiting the other day…it’s turned out just beautifully!
I’m giving away one of these cuties over on Instagram, so hop on over and enter to win a mini to add to your wall!
