The challenge was to challenge yourself! Try something you have not tried before and have fun with it. So I did! I made some SUPER MINI paper pieced flying geese! Trying something new isn't so daunting on a small project so I just went for it and ended up with a flock of really tiny paper pieced flying geese. I started this random project as a challenge to myself in March and I only just finished stitching the hanging corners and binding on!! I am such a procrastinator! Here is a 1p coin to show you the small scale of the geese:
For this mini quilt, I also tried some dense straight line quilting. The end result is lovely and tactile and I am tickled with the effect!! I love my mini even though it looks like a place mat!
I tend to save all sorts of tiny scraps so I was happy to use these tiny red scraps for the geese.
For the binding, I auditioned several different fabrics and the red and white stripes were just so fun so I went with that! And I am happy I did!! Reminds me of candy!
Mini quilt:17.5" wide x 13.5" tall
Geese: 1" long x 0.5" tall
