Focus Through the Prism Challenge Review

For the last seven months, I’ve created a 20″ mini quilt each month.  Those quilts were all part of the Focus Through the Prism Challenge over at Project Quilting. At first, I didn’t think I would be participating in the challenge, because I had to buy special fabric from Cherrywood to participate, and I was Read More …

It’s been a busy sewing week here at MiMP.  I started and completed my final Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt.  This month was snowball blocks, and the only color I had left to work with was yellow, so that made for an interesting project. I also started making blocks for my creepy Read More …

Yellow Snow Mini Quilt

November is the final month for the Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenges.  This month’s block was the Snowball, a super simple block that can be used in a lot of interesting ways. For this month’s quilt, the only color I had left to work with was Yellow.  And, of course, the first thing Read More …

Secret Squirrel Mini Quilt

Lot’s of quilty things have been happening since last week.  As you know, from last week, I made a Monster’s Inc. baby blanket for my nephew Huxley, along with a matching taggie blanket.  And now that Huxley is here, you get to see his cuteness with his new quilt.

Baby Beluga Mini Quilt

I’ve had a bit of a busy month, with family reunions and out of town weddings, so even though I got my Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt pieced early in the month, I didn’t get around to finishing it until this week. This month’s challenge was flying geese.  I’d never made one Read More …

I feel like a slacker because I’ve hardly gotten anything done on my mini quilt since last week.  The only thing I did get done was the hand embroidery. But at least my little baby whale is cute! What are you working on this week? Sharing over at: WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, Let’s Bee Read More …
