Mini Rainbow Swoon | A Finished Mini Quilt | One Monthly Goal Finish | 2019 FAL | Scrap Project 9
Hoohoo! I finished my One Monthly Goal and my first project from the Q4 2019 FAL list! With the changing temperatures, I have noticed an increase in my productivity and I'm loving it. With school in full swing, I am taking full advantage of my free morning.
I've had the Mini Swoon pattern by Thimble Blossoms for a number of years and a swoon has been on my must make list. So when I pulled out those mini patterns purchased awhile ago, this one went on the top of the list.
Since I wanted to use my scrap bins again (they never seem to get smaller!) I could not decide on a color palette. So I went with my go to palette of rainbow.
These little 8 inch blocks are fun, but man there are a lot of tiny pieces! And of course at one point I sewed my blocks together incorrectly. Thank goodness for a sharp seam ripper.
With all of the seams, I decided to keep the quilting straight forward. I marked out a 2 inch angled grid and the quilting went quickly on my Janome HD9. I love having an industrial grade machine, she can stitch through anything!
With this new addition this wall in my new sewing room is not quite as bare. I definitely need more mini quilts, but at the moment it is good! This room no longer echos whenever you talk in here. I love seeing how my quilting as progressed from my earlier mini's to now. Time to get back to finishing those projects, I would really love to start 2020 with a clean slate!
