Everyone seems to want to make everything smaller. Including quilt blocks.
Have you seen the crazy small quilt blocks my lovely daughter has been making?? Oh my gosh, they're adorable! (But maybe just a mite too small for me, really.)
But I did need a mini quilt for a swap recently and decided to try my hand at one of Camille's adorable little patterns. This one is the mini Rain Check, and it's free on her blog right now. And remarkably, I even had an April Showers charm pack sitting around.
And being as I'm from Seattle originally, I've always been just a little crazy about umbrellas. And teeny tiny umbrellas are even better.
You know what they say about those of us from Seattle, right? We don't tan in the summer - we rust! Bwahahah! (Sorry.)
love/hate relationship with fusible web, and this time was no different. It just didn't want to bond as well as I thought it should, particularly on these super-tiny pieces. Next time I may try embroidering the handles, instead of the fusible web.
These little umbrellas are super fun!
Which cute little mini quilt shall I do next?
