Today is my day to post about Konda's new book "Simply Charming Minis". Konda has been writing patterns and making quilts with incredible success for many years. I remember when she wrote her first book for fabric precuts. I thought then and think now that she's such a great quilt author.
I was excited to be involved with Konda's latest book. Konda states that she's been watching mini quilts being made from the sidelines of the blog world and was excited to jump into the "mini" arena. I've been watching mini quilts pop up everywhere, too. So I thought this was a great opportunity for me to make my first mini.
I chose the Marmalade charm pack that I had sitting on my cutting table and paired it with the Mini Basket pattern. It is kind of hard to pick out the baskets in this photo because Marmalade is so full of color and pattern. I really loved making this mini. And as I have stated, Konda's instructions made it super easy.
I cut the binding so I could pair this scallop to edge the mini but I admit I cut it a tad "off" but it worked out ok, I think. I will definitively want to make another mini. From start to finish this is a project that lasts less than a day. What a treat to make and enjoy.
Leave a comment to have a chance at winning this book and you can make a mini from Konda's newest book, too. Sew fun.
