Flower Mini Quilt
This mini was a bit of an experiment. I subscribe to Simply Homemade and a few months ago it came with some free flower stamps.
I played about with these a bit and ended up stamping them onto linen (backed with iron on interfacing) and some of my favourite felt from 21st Century Yarns I cut out the felts flowers on one border and the linen ones a little larger - I hope this picture makes that clearer!
I added lines on the petals to attach the felt to the linen - the needle down option on my machine made it so much easier to make all those turns. The binding is Oakshott. It was a challenge to work with felt in a quilt as I haven't tried this before.
I'm linking this up to the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge at Ellison Lane.
