TGIFF - MQG Swap

I signed up for the first-ever Modern Quilt Guild swap and decided to make Mini Rebel by Libs Elliott.

The 2.5-inch HST's weren't too bad.  But then came the 1.5-inch HST's...oh my, they were tiny...and I started to question my sanity.  But I kept going.


It took me a while to decide on a quilting plan, but in the end, I went with my first instinct -- diagonal.


Kona used:  Coal, Silver, Pomegranate, Carrot, Tomato, Black, and Berry


Mini Rebel finishes at 18-inch square and has been mailed off to my partner.  I hope she likes it.

  8. It is wonderful. I love Kona and keep buying it by the yards (3 yards can go so fast sometimes!) I haven't quite gotten brave enough to buy a whole bolt!

  11. THIS!!! Love it. The diagonal quilting choice was perfection on top! Yup, question my sanity on the 1.5" HSTs--totally can relate! But happy, like you, in the end. :-)

  16. I still can't believe you made such wee HSTs. It's so un-Anja like! I sure hope your partner likes this one! With all the snow last week, I'm still waiting on mine to arrive. Darn you, snow! Thanks for linking up with TGIFF @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!

  18. Love this mini Anja! My partner wanted Libbs too but I went HST instead of Y-seam :) And your quilting completely inspired me to do diagonals on my finish this week. Thanks for the idea!
