Modern Mini Challenge–Local Foods Grow Strong Communities

It’s time to link up our Modern Mini Challenge pieces over at Ellison Lane’s blog.  I decided to share a quilt I made for a Project QUILTING Challenge – my ‘Local Foods Grow Strong Communities’ Quilt. This quilt measures 24” x 24”.     modern-mini-quilt-2013-buttonIMG_8104By combining raw edge applique, painted fabric, wavy free motion quilting, and a bit of angelina fiber I was able to create this fun quilt inspired by a page in a magazine.IMG_8108

I added a fun twist to the binding of this quilt by adding a ‘lip’ of fabric and then tacking it down in spots along the edge.  It creates a ‘wavy’ look to this piece and I’m definitely using it again in future quilts.  I hope you enjoy it!  If you have a Modern Mini Quilt to share that you made in the last 6 months be sure to head over to Ellison Lane’s blog and link up!
