The rules are no quilts bigger than 24" x 24". We can use any pattern or design our own!
And of course use the lovely Island Batik fabrics!
My main focus fabrics are from the Jersey Shore Collection and I think I created a unique way to display them. However I did use a fabric from the Lavish Collection and Sea Salt Sandy Collection plus a neutral.
I got the idea from one of the cross stitch patterns that I designed which plays on the technique of Millefiori with different colors of floss and beads.
Millefiori comes from a glasswork technique which produces distinctive decorative patterns on glassware. It is a combination of the two Italian words "mille" which means thousand and "fiori" which means flowers as it looks like 1000 flowers! It is mostly associated with Venetian glassware today. An example is shown here. Isn't this neat?
Also since it is "officially" Spring now (although in some places it doesn't feel like it) and the week of Easter when "bunnies" are everywhere, this was just a natural fit for my Mini Madness Quilt. So having said that, let me present my quilt - "Flower Bun".
I hope you have enjoyed my Mini Madness blog. I will have another one for you next week. These projects are quick and too much fun, so stay tuned.
I am so honored and pleased to be a part of this group. The projects that have been shared over the month are all winners! I will have a complete list for you next week so you can enjoy the fun!
Thank you for stopping by!
Until next time,
