Another Mini Post

Good evening!  I've made another mini and I finished just in time!

You see, Amylouwho's Mini Quilt Challenge is ending soon and I wanted to make a mini specifically for this fun mini-linky-virtual-party.  I set out on Friday evening to start a quick mini quilt.  I first grabbed a new Fons and Porter pyramid ruler that I had not yet used and then I just went at my stash.

I have a lovely stack of some DS Quilts fabrics with a tiny stack of some vintage looking fabrics that sits in front of me so I pulled from those.  I think I gathered and cut about a dozen different prints.  The quilt could have probably used even more!  This is what I came up with:

The pattern came with the ruler and is called 1000 Pyramids.  I had some trouble with the fabric stretching because of how it is cut.  But it all worked out to my liking in the end.  I added the red border so the finished quilt would read as more red than blue however, I think it could have gone either way. 

This little (24"x22") mini is now living above my desk with my other mini...the star  I made a couple of months ago.  And that is it!  Edited to add* I'll also be linking to Sew Modern Monday over at Canoe Ridge Creations...I only hope this counts as modern!  Head over and be inspired!  Edited to add*  Link to QuiltStory's Fabric Tuesday!  Have not been there in awhile...there are lots of beautiful projects to see!

I hope everyone had a good, blessed, productive weekend and I wish you each a good, blessed, productive week ahead! 

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. ~ Ephesians 1:3  NIV

love, Lisa

Very cute! I really like the way it turned out, and the fabric is perfect for the pattern too.

I love both of your minis! The red was a great choice on this one to help balance the blue.
