THE REST OF THE STORY...............MARCH MINI MADNESS BY ISLAND BATIK AMBASSADORS

In October my sister sent me some Moda 2 1/2" precut squares.  Along with it came this pattern.  For the life of me I can not find the pattern.
I made this immediately but didn't bind it until yesterday (why?  I don't know).  I did not use the small heart pattern given, I was lazy and just used my Accuquilt Go cutter for the hearts.


Anyways, when was deciding what mini to do for this month....  I found my fabrics and decided to make the above pattern.  Don't you just love these Island Batik precut fabrics ( Twenty - 5" strips the width of the fabric)




                                         

Here is my version.  There is no border like the above mini, and the squares are 3" instead of 2 1/2" to make more room for the hearts.  The hearts were made by using my Accuquilt Go cutter with blanket stitch around them.


 Have a fantastic day and do look at my sidebar and check out the other ambassadors for their March mini madness.  They are not all posting today but will be posting sporadically during the month.

My quilt life going forward now that I'm in my 70s is all minis! I love them, and most importantly, don't get bogged down by large quilts anymore. I even belong to a group that swaps one mini per month. So, I absolutely love yours! The hearts are always great on minis, and of course, your fabrics are always perfect!

Yes, those 5 inch strips are wonderful. What a great way to get a large variety of batiks.

I love both mini quilts! I really do. I tried choosing a favorite, but they each have their wonderful qualities individually and equally.
