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!

Happy Stitching!

  1. I love the mini Swoon and your rainbow quilt is adorable! There are a lot of tiny pieces and it would not be normal if you didn't make a mistake in piecing them! (for me it's normal!)

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne ( Quilting Jet Girl ), Beth ( Cooking Up Quilts ), and Leanne ( She Can Quilt ). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers. i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting.  well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next ye

2019 Quilters Meet & Greet

Benita of Victoriana Quilt Designs approached me if I wanted to participate in a Quilter's Meet and Greet. And since both kiddos are in school this year, I actually have a little more time to actually blog, so I figured this was a great time to join the fun. So here is a little more about me, my quilting journey, and life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! Hi!

I was set up with my husband on a blind date, and were married 6 months later. In January 2020 we will be celebrating 12 years of marriage! This by far was one of the craziest things I've done!

Triangle Rainbow Spectrum Mini Quilt | A Finished Quilt

Another quilt finish, oh my! Right before my family and I moved to the UP, a few of my quilty friends started a little swap group. We made a mini with our theme for that swap. Then we would get together for dinner and swap mini's. So I have continued to swap with them and traveling down to visit and swap, minus a few weather hiccups. Well this round we went virtual due to COVID-19, but still had an enjoyable time. And bonus for me I didn't have to travel. So this round was rainbow themed. Between putting our house of the market and our upcoming move, I was at a lose as to what I wanted to make. Lately I've been playing around with different angles and I love triangles, so why not a rainbow triangle mini. I used 2 inch equilateral triangles cut from my stash. I played around with the layout quite a bit it get it just right. Once it was stitched together, I added the the low volume white as a border. To finish it off I used black for my binding, I love that it looks like a fr
