    the first time for a wonky braid (my own idea)! Guess I needed a break from all the piecing so took up the challenge of doing this Orange Peel block. Couldn't wait to try my hand at it and it sure is challenging! Love applique but have done so little of it. Drew my own pattern; they're 2" blocks. Pattern is included if you'd like it.

    The wonky braid was most fun and the only rule is "make sure nothing lines up right!" Don't you love it? Hope you'll try my mini and post pics for all to see. Thanks for looking!

    Wonderful work. Love the wonky braid! Nothing is harder than random.

    I had four small pieces of the braid left over along with four extra leaves so what do you do with the leftovers? You make another mini of course! This one is 3.75" by 5".

    Thanks, Chele! So glad you love it and yes I was particular about the selection of fabrics - could only use 36 different ones. It was fun!

    :-D

    I always love your minis!! I too try to not repeat a fabric if possible.

    When you post your minis if you like you can add each thread to the Mini virtual section. I have added the two I saw this morning. I left it so authors can add to the section when they create a new thread.

    More pics please! Love your projects and your view of minis!!!

    N2, your minis are so darling & cute. Love the last one with the black & background scrapy's. I have to get inspired to make some of these. Don't you have more fun with ones you make up than ones you have to be so precise with. I'm always afraid the Quilt Police will come look over my shoulder, how about you??? They should be off limits to an amateur like myself. LOL.......

    Thank you, Rhonda, for your most kind words!! Oh, I love to repeat a fabric in a project! It was hard for me to not repeat one! I've always wanted to do a charm quilt so this sufficed. I was determined to make it a charm quilt with NO repeats that I love to do. Anyway, thank you so much for your nice words as always and for posting my posts in the Mini Section also! Didn't know we were permitted to add something to another section. When we subscribe, what all does that entail? Just PM me. I subscribed today anyway not knowing what all I'm getting into as there was no explanation. Thanks, again, Rhonda

    :-D :-D
