My first mini

Eight Point Star This week I made my first ever mini quilt.  I used a free paper pieced eight point star pattern from Quilters Cache. (My original source was the Wombat Quilts blog.) IMG_20150524_155824894 I’ve been wanting to make a navy and pink quilt for a while now so thought a mini might be a good way to try out colour combinations.Eight Point StarMy mini finishes at fifteen inches square after I added a border.

Originally I made this mini to practise my FMQ on but was too scared to ruin it! So I did straight line echo quilting but did use a few different coloured threads.
