Raising the Sun – A new mini quilt

Happy last day of March everyone! Did you survive? I barely did! Did you finish your goal for March? You have a few more hours to link up. You can do it! Burn the midnight oil, after all, we’ve got awesome prizes!

One of the things I worked on in the month of March was two mini quilts for a birthday club that I am part of. Both are original designs. One is destined to be a pattern and will appear at a later date. The other could become a pattern if enough people express an interest.

Here is the back. I used the backing as the binding this time, so I had to do my label a little differently than my usual binding label.

Here’s a close up of that label:

What have you been up to? Come back tomorrow for the April goal party!

    this is such a pretty mini quilt. I don’t do much with yellow or orange either. you did a lovely job of combining the fabrics.

    I didn’t finish – about half quilted because I decided to go by hand. I love Raising the Sun. That circular quilting is so perfect for this design. If you do it as a pattern, I’ll buy it. They aren’t my colors, either (blues and greens and grays – Raising the Moon?), but they are perfect for the title and look wonderful with that backing, too. Great job! I look forward to seeing the other one, too.
