    16" Mini Quilt Top

    I made this 12 1/2 inch mini quilt top today and when it is finished will be 16" squared.

    What I did;
    #1 cut 1 1/2 inch strips
    #2 sewed these strips together
    #3 cut it down to 3" square
    #4 sewed 4 of those squares together
    #5 once sewed together I trimed down to 4 3/4" squares
    #6 also cut some circular/flowery batiks pieces into 4 3/4" squares
    #7 alternated each square and than stitched them up 3 squares per row, with 3 rows for a total of 9 mini squares

    Next you will see half a dozen different color borders I have put on the wall next to te mini pieced top trying to decide which looks best so I'm going to ask y'all if you would view it and let me know which one you like best.

    Thanks

    Cute mini! I like broders 3 and 6, are they the same fabric, just different widths? If so, i like the wider border.

    Lovely! I think I prefer 1 and 2 for the border. There is something about that light green that really makes the blocks pop for me.

    I love #3[dark border] if it was cut down about half. Put a straight piece of paper on it and see what you think. It is a beautiful piece of work. I love it. It looks so hard to do.

    It really isn't. Key is to use fabrics that fool the mind into thinking it is hard to do. :-)

    Very pretty. The dark purple makes it pop! But it's your quilt--all are acceptable.
