Island Batik Magnificent Mini

Yesterday I shared that I'll be continuing as an Island Batik Ambassador through 2019! :-) Our first project of the year is Magnificent Minis! When I opened my box last month one of the fabrics that caught my eye was a lovely aqua and purple dot print in one of my 5-inch strip packs. I used that as my inspiration for the mini and chose other prints from the 5-inch strip packs to coordinate.

I opted for a medallion style mini featuring a piece of the lovely birds as the center.

Then I featured my lovely dot print in the flying geese.

It is currently minimally quilted with some stitch in the ditch, but I may add some free motion to really make the feature fabrics pop!

My mini is approximately 14" x 14" and is pieced and quilted with Aurifil 50wt.

Thanks for visiting! Be sure to surf over to the other Island Batik Ambassadors' blogs to see their Magnificent Minis!

      Thank you, Vasudha. When given the choice, I am drawn to purple, though I often have a hard time with purples playing nicely with other colors. I'm glad this one all worked out.

      Thank you, Barbara. It's been a bit of a game of two steps forward, three steps back. But it will all come together. ;-)
