Scrappy Stars - Mini Quilt Challange

Today I'm entering the Scrappy Stars quilt I just finished in the Mini Quilt Challenge over at amylouwho!
I love making mini quilts. This one was really fun because I used so many little scraps I've been saving. I decided to go with a 1 inch patchwork shashing to use up even more scraps. I'm glad I did too because I love it!


It was really hard to get good pictures on the line today. The wind is wild out there! I quilted this mini with straight horizontal straight lines with aqua thread. I love the way straight line quilting looks.


For the back I used a vintage sheet as I often do.


I bound it with Kona in the color Aqua.


I love this one! I say that often but it was so fun making it and I am really starting to feel as though all sewing should be fun.





Stop over at amylouwho's blog and check out the other mini quilts from some super talented people!
Have a great weekend :)

Those stars are awesome and they look so good on that gray with that pretty binding. Love your windy day photos and your yummy straight line quilting.

I love this! Grey, bright scrappiness, and stars are all winners in my book. And I love seeing the silos and barns in the background of your pictures!
