Mini and Two in One Pouch Finishes

I'm so excited to have my mini all finished up for my Instagram mini swap. It pushed me to try new things and I just love how it turned out! The mini is #7 on my Q4FAL list. I'm linking up with TGIFF and Finish It Up Friday.

Here it is in all its glory. The pattern is from Vintage Quilt Revival. I was a little nervous about the colors at one point thinking maybe it was a little too 80's track suit but I think it turned out well.

The quilting was so fun!! I did a sort of straight line spiral thing in the diamonds and squares. I think it adds fun texture. You can also sort of see my binding method. Most people were hand stitching them and I just can't make that happen. It actually looks better when I machine stitch mine so I stuck with it.

This is just for the cool texture shot. I really like the quilting on this one and I may have to do something like that again. I was going to do more quilting but the people all polled all agreed that it was better like this.

I wanted to throw in an extra little something in her package. A zipper pouch seemed like just the thing but I didn't know which one until Svetlana from S.O.T.A.K. Handmade came out with her Two in One Pouch.

Aren't they adorable?! I did a little patchwork with some leftover Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille.

One more shot just because I love them so. I have one more cut out and ready to sew but then we had the holiday and I didn't get to it. I highly recommend the pattern. There are a lot of pictures and good explanations. You can get it here.

As a side note I got to the part with the double pointed needles on my hat. This is my first time ever attempting them and I was a bit afraid of it. Now, a few rows in, I've totally got this! I'm ready for my next challenge - any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
