My secret partner stated that she like red and aqua, bright colours and also loved the work of Camille Roskelley (of Simplify). So what did I do? I went and bought the Thimble Blossoms Spool pattern and got to work!
I chose to use some Laura Gunn fabric and fussy cut a bird for one of the thread sections. I also used some of my absolute favourite Joel Dewberry fabrics in the thread section too! The wood plank fabric is Deb Strain 'Coming Home' and I think it works perfectly for the spool! I decided to add a border of triangles because my secret partner had a lot of triangles in her inspiration mosaic. I attempted something new - equilateral triangles - which were harder than I thought so only one strip was 'artistcially' added to the side!
Kona red borders were added and then I did some hand stitching and machine quilting to give the mini some visual detail.
