Hello Betty Mini

I love this fabric line of Hello Betty. These little 2" triangles were the scrap pieces I trimmed off from my siggy blocks. And if any of you saw my latest Facebook status, it was pertaining to this mini quilt. I was quilting it on the diagonal and all was going well, until I turned it over the last time and noticed a BIG wrinkle. I was crushed. And after reading a blog post Barb did on pulling out stitches, I was inspired to pull out the stitches from this mini. Her quilt was much bigger than my mini, so I can't even imagine how long it took her.

Today is the "drain the knee" day. Yah! Really, I'm ready to get this over with.

  13. Tonya - I have been out of the loop. Did you show us the siggy quilt yet? This mini is very, very cute! I just love it. I can't imagine how disappointing it would be to turn it over and see a wrinkle. Do you use a walking foot or do you free motion quilt? I only use a walking foot. How is the knee? I managed two quilt TWO quilts Monday, which means I can actually pin baste the purples quilt now. My DHs birthday is Feb 12th so I am determined to get this one done. I needed the pins from the other two quilts in order to pin baste this one. It is one of the largest I have ever made. I'll post on my blog soon. Ali

  14. I love this, Tonya. It's so pretty with all those colours on the white background. What a great way to use up the leftover corners. You're a genius!
