Anna's Mini Quilt

Anna's Haphazard Chevron Mini Quilt
Happy Tuesday! I can't believe June is already over, the month absolutely flew by! Itsi time to share one last mini quilt! This one was made for my friend Anna!

When I sat down to decide on colors for this quilt, I knew I wanted to stick to neutrals with a pop of color. Anna has such cool style and I know she is drawn to this type of palette. I was excited to finally make something from Quilting Happiness, a beautiful book by two talented ladies who I'm lucky to call friends, Christina Lane and Diane Gilleland. I went with the Haphazard Pillow Pattern as the basis of this mini quilt!

I love the way this mini quilt turned out! I managed to not follow the directions and cut some pieces wrong, so it looks a bit different from the project in the book, but that's okay! As it turns out, I'm good at writing instructions but not so good at following them.  It had nothing to do with the fact that I was cutting after 10pm! ;)

All the fabrics used in this mini are from Art Gallery Fabrics. The backing is a print from Minimalista and the binding is Honey Pure Element solid.  I used a 50wt Aurifil thread and a triple zig-zag stitch for the quilting!

I had so much fun making these mini quilts! It was a treat to experiment with different techniques and colors. On top of that, it's always a pleasure to give something handmade. I'm sort of itching to make a few more now!

Happy Quilting!
