There is a little group on flickr called Mini Quilt Monday. So this would be the perfect time to share this mini quilt that I finished last night. It is a real, real, real mini, measuring just under 5.5 by 6.5 inches, almost a postcard really. I did the flower back in January here, it has been pinned up on the noticeboard ever since waiting to be sewn into something. It's actually going to go in the mail this week, to a lovely lady who stepped in and made an Angel Quilt for the recent flickr dolls quilt swap I was helping host. I don't think she reads my blog so I am safe to say that! Just a little thank you for her kindness to another swapee.
This is why I love binding! What a mess! I sewed three strips of wadding scraps together for this mini, doing my bit of recycling for the week. Bits of wadding, backing, strips everywhere, it's nice to cut it all down to size and then sew the binding on. Sort of like wrapping a parcel.
