I felt the urge to work on something quick and fun a few nights ago, so I started this little mini quilt. Jessica was working with these gorgeous Pat Bravo Pure Elements solids this past weekend. She happened to throw out quite a few scraps (you know, those ones that most normal people throw out, but I save!). I dug through them and found 5 small rectangles of each of the colors she used. In her defense I think the biggest scrap was 1.25" by 3.5"? Some were as small as .75"x3.25". I have a problem with scraps! I finished it off with Heath by Alexander Henry, a new favorite, and this dark gray JoAnns print, an old favorite. I was finally able to play around with fun organic quilting lines and I have to say, despite how time consuming it is, I love the result! This little mini quilt is destined for my side table! By the way, the hand of these fabrics is AMAZING! They feel really similar in quality to Heather Ross fabrics (Mendocino, West Hill, etc)!
