What better way to end 2019
than to spotlight a December mini.
The colors of the month?
Definitely, red and green.
I was inspired by a free pattern
Pam Budda had available on her website.
26" x 26"
I increased the size of the blocks.
Hers were very small. 😊😊
I also made the blocks scrappy
and also added a border.
I kept the quilting simple and
used a 28 wt. Aurifil thread to add texture,
but added a design in the border
which really doesn't show up except on the back.
If you have been quilting for a long time
you might recognize the fabric
I used for the binding.
It's an oldie.
It's from the Rising Sun collection
from the Smithsonian, way back when.
Guess it's why we have a stash!
I've enjoyed the monthly mini
challenge hosted by Wendy
I hope 2020 will
find me continuing to use pieces from my stash,
being inspired and challenged by all of you,
and above all, having fun creating, playing,
while exploring new possibilities.
I'll be back at the end of January.
