I also wanted to do a mini quilt for Penny but I wasn't sure what to make, even after stalking her. I went through my (large) collection of quilting book and selected the Fractal design from Ali's lovely Quilt Lab book which is rather neutral and made it with solids too. I really like the design and I can see more of these in my future!
I finished the binding all by machine using a black batik I had left from my Batik Stars quilt.
Quilt stats: Fractal
Top: kona cotton solids and klona cotton solids
Backing and binding fabric: black batik
Size: 24' square
Machine pieced and machine quilted with Aurifil #4654.
Started and finished 30 Aug 14
These were my 2 last OPAMs for August and another item of my Q3 Finish-Along list
And this is the package I sent to Penny, with items picked at the Festival of Quilts, on holidays in France and here at home.
Now let me show you how Gina, my secret sister spoiled me rotten. Dive with me in the fantastic parcel that was waiting for me on my return from my holidays:
And now for the mini, I just completely love it. It is wonderful, fresh, modern, original... The mini made it straight from the box to my bedroom wall where it looks fantastic. Hubby loves it too actually.
Thank you very much Gina, I feel truly blessed to have such a generous and caring Secret Sister and I really appreciate your very thoughful and wonderful package. And thanks to Michele for organising such a fun swap.
