Road 15 Mini Finish

I finished another thing from my Q1FAL list. It was pretty perfect timing for this one too because we just moved into our new house and it's house/road themed. I had a lot of fun making this one. Check it out...

I found this cute pattern on the Moda Bake Shop and modified it to the fabric I had on hand. I love the diagonal stripe on this one with the contrasting background. I think it totally adds to the fun of the pixelated heart pattern.

I had a lot of fun quilting this one! I went in the ditch around the squares and then the background was all pebbles. It had been a while since I've done the pebbles and I just love them!

This fabric is so great I am so happy that I kept some for myself. I bought a lot when it first came out but ended up making my mom a quilt and three cushions with it. I saved just enough for a mini for myself.

I love this fabric for the backing and you can really see the thread change here. I did blue and white to match the backgrounds on the front.

I super love this fabric for binding. I should have bought so much more of it! This is also another great shot of the quilting. So much love for the pebbles!!

So we moved into our house last Saturday. We are so in love! We bought it on Tuesday and then used a few days to work on it. I ended up painting the whole house and I'm so happy with my color! I even got my minis hung up these week. I've made four of these pictured, the rest came from swaps. It's so fun and inspiring to look at all this creativity every day!
