Grow - Magnificent Minis with Island Batik from Creatin' in the Sticks

Becoming an 
Island Batik Ambassador
is a chance for me
to grow both as a quilter and a blogger.



Every month,
Island Batik Ambassadors have a challenge in which a project is made and shared
and
this month's challenge
is
Magnificent Minis.



The challenge for February is to make a mini quilt that is smaller than 24" x 24".

I used the challenge to make a wall hanging to remind myself to 
grow from these challenges.

(In case I forget why I'm doing this...lol)
Actually, I picked out some of the fabrics I liked and I designed ...

Island Batik Magnificent Minis from Quilting Affection


The first project for the 2019 Island Batik Ambassador were challenged with was to make a Magnificent Mini that measured 24" x 24 or smaller.




For my project, I wanted to make a modern looking mini out of my Studio 180 Design tools and some of the fabrics from my Island Batik Ambassador leftover blender and basic fabrics from previous years. I also used four 5" x wof strips from my Stash builders bundles that I received in my Island Batik Ambassador Box.



My mini blocks were 3 1/2" unfinished,  I needed to make  1" finished units from my ...

Stars at Play Mini {Magnificent Minis with Island Batik} from Little Bunny Quilts

This month, our Island Batik Ambassador theme is mini quilts! 


As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics to use and share with you! 

We were tasked with making mini quilts less than 24" square, and I knew just what I wanted to make! 

You might remember my Stars at Play quilt that I made last summer as an IB Ambassador project. 


Amanda and I have been working on getting this pattern finished and I decided to make my own version of the mini quilt for this pattern using my new ...

Chris's minis pack some big personality!!! from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

I just finished two mini quilts for Chris who blogs over at Chrisknitssews.  She made this two beauties! The first is the feathered star - oh oh oh my!! This sweet lil charmer is 29x29 inches - so you know those HST's gotta be tiny!  I just adore this red and white little quilt.  If I weren't so afraid of piecing I might even try my own.

Winter White in January from From My Carolina Home

After the holidays and the fullness of the decorations from the past few months, I like to clean things up for January.  For many years, I have preferred a simple and mostly white decor to start the new year.  On the veranda, I replaced the red poinsettia blooms with white ones in the birdcage.

On the coffee table, the Snowflake Table Runner forms the base to display a bone china leaf dish and a Fenton candy dish.  See the link for the tutorial for the runner.  The white cover on the Milk Street cookbook is perfect.

Stitched with Love Mini Quilt from A Quilting Life

Stitched with Love Mini Quilt

Hello and happy Tuesday!   November was a busier than normal month for me (and I’m guessing for many of you).  Those of us in the US had the Thanksgiving holiday a bit early this year which resulted in an earlier than normal movement into all things Christmas and holidays (Happy Hanukkah if you are […]

What Can Happen in Just a Few Minutes from ... Cat Patches

There was one housekeeping chore on my calendar yesterday, but I have my priorities straight, as you well know. Sewing first. It was the moment of truth for the little primary squares. I figured I'd get it to flimsy stage and then do my housework, finishing it off if I had time. Holding my breath, I flipped the switch on Big Bertha, and...


Phew! To be fair to her reputation, she's been turned on and off many times since I brought her home, and I've only seen the error code just that one time. Maybe she was ...

Homecoming from ... Cat Patches

There was a little bit of everything in my day yesterday, and so I have a lot of pictures for you today. First, Big Bertha is home. Doesn't she look all spiffy having spent the past month at the spa? I'd say I think she lost a few pounds, but when I lift her, I know that isn't true.


Believe me, I hesitated about threading all the cords in and out behind my table and through the bars of my desk drawers because I didn't trust at all that she would be working again. But then ...

Closing in on a Tiny Finish from ... Cat Patches

It was a wet morning yesterday, but blue skies returned by afternoon. My morning started with my usual slow-stitching. I'm just getting started on the 2nd of 12 blocks for the Appalachian Memories quilt. This one has the bear's paw block on the barn.


It'll be easy enough to finish that off this morning, and then start working on the barn structure. These are all worked in stem stitch, which takes a little longer than backstitch.


I'm thinking I'll do the trees behind the barn in fly stitch.

Of course, it's very cozy in ...

Don't sweat the small stuff from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

And we all know that EVERYTHING is the small stuff. I try to live by this saying and it usually takes a lot for me to get worried about something.

The blog is late this morning, but I was at the gym sweating my butt off as I zipped out another 30 K in less than an hour. Nothing like a good workout and then a good breakfast to get the day started. Gosh, I love those steel cut oats! Except that it makes me late, but that's OK. We're not going to worry about that.

So what ...

Creating For Joy: The Point of Mini Quilts from Blossom Heart Quilts

Last weekend, in celebration of my new mini quilt patterns – Little Liberties – I put up a poll on Instagram about Cinque Terre, asking if people would make a mini or make more blocks and make it bigger. One person commented, kindly enough, that she’d make more blocks to make a quilt you can actually use because what’s the point of minis?!

And you know what? I was once her. What on earth can you actually use them for?! Sure, some are the right size to turn into a cushion, or a table runner. And if we weren’t ...
