For this round of the MINI QT SWAP our theme was the TRUE MINI. Meaning it could be NO MORE then 12×12. Most people did a mini with at least 9 blocks in it and a lot had some sort of sashing in between. Which means most blocks are about 4″ or less square.
I sent mine off to my partner in Australia, but it hasn’t gotten to her quite yet, so I will share the finished project later – I want it to be a surprise. I am really pleased with how it turned out though.
Mine arrived just the other day. It is wonderful. It measures 11.5 x 11.5″.
She also sent me some lovely COSMO floss to use for the stitching pattern she sent me from Crabapple Hill – WHO I LOVE. Can you believe the blocks?
Each block measures 2″ x 2″. It is so tiny. I almost think that it would be 2 stitches holding those together, that is it. I made mine 3.5″ each and that was picky work, I can’t imagine how picky this would have been. But….
But it is super. The back is terrific too – just so cheerful.
Learned Today: Everyone should try their hand at a TRUE MINI once. It is a crazy process where the KISS method really helps. Keep It Simple Stupid.
