Mini quilts

A discussion came up on one of my Ravelry groups about mini quilts, and in particular whole cloth mini quilts, so I said I'd post pictures of some of ones I've done. Here they are.

The rainbow colored one, while it looks pieced, is not. The center is a single block of fabric printed with the rainbow chevrons. The black border is pieced on, the the rainbow border, while it is pieced on, is not itself pieced (trying to piece all those tiny curves is a bit over-the-top, even for me!).

The fish are the goldfish from the original Fantasia. I had come across some line drawings of them in an old artbook at my then-local library & photocopied them. When I found the quilting pattern that reminded me of an aquarium, I remembered the tiny fish & decided to use them on my quilt. They are quilted with a variegated, multi-hued embroidery floss.

The roses are the same quilting pattern overall but, obviously, with a different focal pattern in the center.

The other quilts were just patterns that I wanted to try in the color combinations that happened to 'feel right' at the time.

Oh. My. Godric.

If I fall off the wagon and become a quilter, I am TOTALLY blaming you!!!!
