We only shared our favourite colour(s) with each other and decided that the mini should be between 12-20 inches. The rest was up to each of us to decide on. Pretty open parameters, wouldn't you say? Katy got me spot on - green, aqua, grey and linen = yum!
For the backs, we both used the Ikea Nummers! Great minds think alike!! You can see my hand stitching a bit better here on the backing.
For Katy's mini quilt, all I knew was that her favourite colours were brown and yellow. I decided to make her a Maple Leaf mini because I have always loved the quilts I have seen with the maple leaf block so this was my chance to make something with that shape. I even did some hand stitching! The middle square is a hand stitched maple leaf in white. And look - I added a sausage/wiener dog too!!
As you can see from the photo at the very top, we exchanged our mini quilt creations in front of the entire guild. I loved the meeting - full of energy and laughter and even some fnar fnar moments. This was their last meeting until September and happened to be the AGM so I got to see how another guild ran the business side of things. Very professional. Laura, the President, is a wonderful leader and I wish her a fantastic second year. Who knows, maybe one day I will live back in the Ottawa valley and be a member!!?? Thank you Katy for my wonderful mini and mini-mini 'Jax' and I hope we can meet again soon and eat cake (again).
