TGIFF - Spring mini

I needed a mini quilt to hang on my little stand on my telephone table.

Some of you may remember me working on minis every month, back in 2012. I also made these cupcake minis for our birthdays.

Well, I never got around to making the minis for April, May or June. So last week, I found myself a cute little embroidery block in my digital library. I found a nice orange floral fabric and used it to pick out the thread for the embroidery. I stitched it out with my embroidery machine and then bordered it, including a periwinkle little folded border.

Then I quilted around the embroidery and in the border. I simply used straight lines. I followed the edge of my foot but I moved my needle over as far as I could so the lines wouldn't be too close together.

I found this lovely gold fabric in my stash to use for the binding.

I think it is adorable and it will be perfect in the stand for the months of April, May and June!


I am linking this finish up to TGIFF over at My Quilt Infatation. Go check out some other great finishes!
