March's mini quilt is a tiny Dresden plate. I used a template just for this size. It required more handwork again. It did work up pretty fast. This first picture shows how I first finished it.
I added a border, then the binding in the same color. I didn't like how it turned out. So, I then took off the binding and border, and put the binding back on again. This created it's own border with the binding.
The meetings for this guild have been amazing this year. We've done the mini of the month, a row robin and Dear Jane blocks. I took some pictures of the row robin and will share them with you.
There has been excitement each month to see the next row, and quality work shown each time.
I took more pictures, but this group doesn't hold still very well, and many pictures were too blurry to share.
All participants will be getting their rows back this month. I'm sure everyone is so excited for this!
Then, the mini challenge was applique, hexagons, or English paper piecing. I gave Kim small (1/4") hexagon papers, and she was very brave to use them and put them with her Carpenter's Wheel.
This ball had a very long mathematical name. I would trip over my fingers if I tried to type it!
Then these hexagon type blocks.
Annette is working on a tessalation using birds with paper piecing. She calls it her forever project.
Kris participates in a hexagon swap, and is going to piece hers together to make a shower curtain. Pretty fun idea!
I've been trying to get caught up on customer quilts, but they come in as fast as they go out. I made a tote bag this week, but it is a little bigger than I expected. I may make another just a bit smaller.
I am working on the next mini quilt, but I won't be making two of them before next Thursday. I may make the smaller one before the May meeting, because I really like how the small one is turning out. It will probably finish around 42 inches square. Not as small as the others, but small enough this time.
