Saltwater Mini Quilt

Hello, Friends!
I've been back at the sewing machine,
and I've got lots of new things to show you.
 Today I'm sharing my Saltwater Mini Quilt,
made from the pattern by Thimbleblossoms.

I was craving a mini quilt, 
and this design looked like such fun to make.
I was not disappointed when I made it
from a few fat quarters of Hello Darling
by Bonnie and Camille.

I made this block first, and I was hooked.
The apple green looks so sweet with the
pink strawberry print.

Hmmm...I wasn't sure I liked the "busy" blocks...
but they've grown on me.

They're just little blocks, so they have to grab attention.

This one is actually my favorite, with the dots.

I put them all into place, with some bright white sashing.

For the quilting, I used some wavy lines.

This type of quilting is my new method of choice.

I think I like the lines going horizontal on this project.

This mini quilt would make a cute topper for a small table.
It would fit in with modern Christmas decor,
but it's just right for any season.

Have you made any mini quilts lately?
I can't wait to make some more!

  1. It is delightful. I like the 'busy' blocks - the colours pop and you are quite right - they 'grab' you. Nicely done Amy.

  2. I am in love with your Saltwater mini quilt! And your red polka dotted teapot is a perfect partner for this dear quilt! Such eye candy!

  3. Beautiful mini! Perfect combination of fabrics and design. Your quilting is the loveliest finish to this charmer. Bravo!

  4. I really like the "wavy" lines there a tutorial somewhere that I could check out or would you do one in the near future for all your readers?! Looks almost foolproof. thanks.
