  2. Am I getting this right, to see your mini creation I have to go to"Quilt with Love" or just to get the stories patterns? I like the Millefiori collection, these are right up my ally with style and color. I'm starting to like quite a few of their bundles lately. I've always liked their gingham. Thank for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Yes, I have. I was doing a BOM for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler by Jennifer Chiaverini. This one, we chose blocks and enlarged them to 12"....this one, I ended up enlarging too much. So I finished it, put a border on, and made a 20" mini quilt. Nice for practicing FMQ techniques, binding, audition thread colors.
    I've since made a few more and plan to make more!
