Mini Quilt Finish & GIVEAWAY
This was a quick and fun project. I like to stop and just do something pretty and creative every once in a while.
The kind folks at RJR Fabrics sent me a bit of their new collection from Yuko Hasegawa called Everything But the Kitchen Sink. It's a really cute 30's retro collection that features adorable bunnies, circus elephants, some dots and geometrics and loads of florals.
When the fabrics arrived I was immediately drawn to the black and whites. After thinking on it for a few days I decided to use them to make a mini quilt featuring a dresden in the center. I hadn't done a dresden in a while and I thought this would be the perfect project for one.
It went together really quickly and I just love the results. All the black and whites really play well with one another. Plus the little splashes of red and yellow give it some neat interest. I think people shy away from 30's fabrics because they are perceived as too cutesy, but they came out really sophisticated in this piece. Sometimes limiting the color palate can really make a difference in the tone of the project.
Tomorrow, I will post a tutorial on how to make this mini quilt. If you're looking to get in on the mini quilt party that seems to be taking over instagram and the internet then make sure you stop back - or even follow me on bloglovin by clicking the button Follow and get the tutorial as soon as it comes out!
Today, however, RJR Fabrics is going to giveaway a fat quarter bundle of the 4 fabrics I used to make this project.
