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!
What a great idea to fussy cut and feature the sweet birds. Simple but really effective.
Thank you, Dione. I'm happy with how it all came together.
Awww - so cute!
Adorable. I love the fussycut little bird in the center.
Thanks, Gene. Now I need to find the perfect recipient of this mini.
This is so cute!
Love your choice of dark purple and how you framed the little birdie.
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.
Cute mini, it will make a nice wall hanging or pillow.
Wall hanging this time, but I need to keep pillows in mind for future projects. :-)
Love those birds I’m the summer lines. Great mini. Congratulations on getting it done with everything!
Thank you, Kathleen. It was certainly a whirlwind.
That is lovely...good job
Thank you, Diane!

Great project. Those are some awesome fabrics you received.
Thank you , Anja. Lots of fun stuff in there. I'm excited to start designing my March project.
Those colors are just so yummy! Hope you get your house in order. Wish I was there to help.
Thank you, Barbara. It's been a bit of a game of two steps forward, three steps back. But it will all come together. ;-)
