Magnificent Mini’s from If These Threads Could Talk

The products shown in this post were given to me by Island Batik.

Magnificent Minis

Our assignment for February was to create a “Magnificent Mini” using any technique we chose.  The only criteria was the size: 24″ x 24″ or smaller.  It seems I’m always collecting quilt blocks for hearts and Christmas Trees. The first thing I do is fire up my EQ8 and start drawing.
