A New Scrappy Mini

I have three minis that I need to make this fall and the first one to ship is later October but I have a vacation coming up so want to get this one done by the end of the month.  Actually I really want to get all three done before I leave.

First one up my partner likes bright colors, a recent interest in Dresden's and a favorite designer is JeliQuilts.  So I think I met the goals of that with this design I came up with.

This is the background I will be using but have to pick up more since I don't think I will have enough.

All of the fabrics I am starting with my scrap bin and what is laying around on my cutting table and a few I pulled from stash but not many.  I pulled more than I thought I would need for this.

 I did finish the yellow to orange as well last night but didn't take a picture of that yet.

I am really liking how this is taking shape.  I may on the bottom row make the blocks to say SEW as my partner also likes word quilts.

I need to finish up the right side with the two strips of flying geese which can be found on Craftsy for free here.  I am not a proficient paper piecer but I think I am doing ok so far.  I only had to rip a couple of times when the pieces didn't fit right.  They are taking a little longer than I thought they would and I am not quite sure how I am going to get all the parts to fit together yet but I will figure that out once I have them completed.

I am linking up with She Can Quilt for Scraptastic Tuesday.


  1. Beautiful Dresden and I love the geese too.

  2. The Dresden is beautiful by itself, but the geese add so much to it.
