big finish on mini quilt monday



I am so happy with my finish today.  It is a block I made when I joined one of Lily's quilt alongs.  I made this dresden circle and didn't know if it would ever lay flat.  But after the big stitch quilting and binding I am happy to say it is flat and will look nice on my sewing room wall : )







I had several firsts on this Mini Quilt Monday .  I started big stitch quilting, used 505 basting spray, and I also used scrap binding.  All in all, this was a good finish!





I may decide to add more stitching to this mini quilt later, but for now I am going to just enjoy it like it is.  It was a beautiful morning to take pictures and my sweet dog, Sandy, is always nearby in case I need her help.

I have linked this blog to Quilt Story Fabric Tuesday.

What a great dresden, a a perfect use for a mini quilt. The scrap binding goes really well as does the polka dots! Coming from mini quilt @ fresh lemons!

I love the colors in your mini-quilt. And a great use for your dresden block. I love to make minis out of things I want to try but not make a billion of. Also, I'm a firm believer that all quilt pictures are improved by a dog, so yay!
