Queen of the last-minute finish—that’s me! My mini for the Modern Mini Challenge is done, with just a few hours to spare.
In the spirit of using what I already have, more than half of the HSTs in this mini were made last year—they were the “bonus HSTs,” leftover from when I made my Supernova Quilt-Along quilt. I trimmed them up, added a few more (mostly the greens), and ta-da, a mini was born! (But yes, it still took forever!)
The background and binding are Kona Coal, and I quilted it with simple straight lines along the seams. The completed mini measures about 20″ square and the HSTs are 1.75″ finished. I couldn’t be happier with it! Thanks, Jennifer, for organizing this great challenge!
And one more thing—would you believe, after all of that, I still have more than 80 of these leftover HSTs? I think I’ve had my fill of them at this point, so would anybody else like to play with them? They’re mostly blues, pinks, oranges, and yellows, and they need to be squared up (I squared mine up to 2.25″ square). If you would like to give these HSTs a home, just tell me that in a comment, and I’ll pick somebody tomorrow. (THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.)
