An Aviary Mini

I had some Aviary 2 scraps left over from this quilt, and I wasn’t sure what to do with them. Then I had an impromptu sew-in at a friend’s where I was admiring all of the mini quilts she has made. So the next time I was staring down the pile of Aviary 2 scraps, I knew just what to do!

 I tried to go with the flow and do some improv piecing. I also went with an organic straight line quilting style, which I LOVE! It was so easy and fun to do, and I think it goes great with the piecing in this quilt.
 For the back I used a large chunk of the only print that I had left, along with some solids.
Finished size is 20″x20″
I think there are lots more minis in my future! In fact, I have a fabulous idea to incorporate some mini quilts into the photo wall that I’m creating in our dining room.
Oh, speaking of mini quilts, I was thinking of setting up a swap. Would anyone be interested in that? We can wait until after the rush of the holidays, if that works best. Leave me a comment if you’d be interested!

  1. Super cute mini! They're so satisfying, aren't they? Organic close quilting can be a pain on a larger project but it's perfect for one this size. Love love it!p.s. I'm a "maybe" on the swap. Keep me posted….

  2. Beautiful. I love the straight-line quilting — it really goes well with the big prints. I'm still hoarding my Aviary 2, not sure what I want to do with it yet, but this is definitely inspirational.

  3. I would be very interested in a mini-swap, if it's open internationally. I haven't made any minis yet, and after the rush of holiday sewing would be best. Would love to explore the world of minis!gustafson dot jenna at gmail dot com
