Blogger's Quilt Festival - NYB Mini Quilt entry

AmysCreativeSide.com

Time to enter the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I have only entered a couple of times before so this is pretty exciting!  There are already so many amazing quilts linked up and so much inspiration I can hardly contain myself!! Thank you to Amy's Creative Side for hosting this on-line festival!

I have decided to submit my DSTT New York Beauty in to the MINI QUILT category.


My original blog post about it is HERE.  You see, Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures held a "Modern Traditional" mini competition with Katy Jones (Monkey Do) and Julie Herman (Jaybird Quilts) so I entered this beauty (pun intended!!) into the competition.  And won.  Crazy awesome world!


Each side is 20 inches as shown by the tape measure in the picture below.  You can just see the straight-line quilting in invisible thread here too.


I enjoyed making this mini quilt and used some fan fabrics!  I posted a few sneak-peak pics on Instagram as I was making it and those ants were quite a hit but some people thought they were a bit creepy!  I love those ants!  Here it is before I quilted it and put the binding on:


QUILT STATS:
Size: 20" x 20" = 80 inches total perimeter
Thread: Aurifil and invisible thread
Fabrics: Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures
Pattern: New York Beauty blocks
