This is the collection of mini quilts that graces one of the walls in Lisa’s studio. Seriously. Could you sit in a room with this and get anything done? Major. Distraction. (Chris Pine could walk through the room and who would notice?) (Okay, maybe that ‘s a stretch… but you get the point.)
Since Lisa loves Mini quilts, and Lisa is Miss August in the 12 Contests contest… it’s all about minis.
Make a mini using at least 50% Primitive Gatherings for Moda fabrics and you’re in.
The design can be your own original creation or one from a purchased pattern. Hand- or machine-pieced, appliquéd with cotton-wool-whatever, embellished, almost anything goes.
For all the details – Lisa Bongean’s 12 Contests Mini Contest.
Deadline for entries is September 30th.
One more quick thing to share – have you seen Lisa’s Wool & Needle V Flannels yet?
They’re showing to shops now and will be available in December. They’re beautiful for pieced quilts and as a foundation for wool appliqué. They also make a gorgeous backing for any quilt as they are incredibly soft – even softer after washing.
If you don’t want to wait until December, there are other Wool & Needle Flannel collections that might still be available – Wool & Needle IV and Wool & Needle III. I write “might” because these never seem to last very long. (They’re that lovely to sew with, and they really are that soft.)
That’s it for today – be sure to get all the details about Lisa’s Mini Contest and start planning your mini. Then get busy making it!
Did I mention there will be prizes?
I hope a big yardstick like the one above Lisa’s minis is on the list.
