A Mini for Market

I didn't get to go to Market this last weekend, but I did get to send a little mini ;)   I was super excited when the wonderful folks at Riley Blake Designs asked if I could create a mini using their new Hashtag Blender.   And you know, it just had to be an Irish Chain right ;)   I decided on a Double Irish Chain as I haven't made one of those for myself yet.   So fun!!!

I had so much fun making up this mini :)   Those squares at 1" finished, so ya, lots of tiny piecing, which I just loved.   And the added applique with the button centers was just the perfect little pop to fill in those large white centers.   So cute!!!  I used the Coral and Grey Hashtag fabric with White Hashtag fabric in the background and they are all just so pretty together :)

And my little mini hung with some great company at market!!!  A whole wall of Hashtag Mini's, how adorable is that!!!  Such a variety of wonderful designs ;)

Oh, and I can't forget to mention the quilting :)   I just love a simple crosshatch quilting, and even though it takes a long time it is totally worth it (and much more manageable in a mini ;)  The crosshatching is 1/2" apart, so cute and tiny.  

And that is my little Double Irish Chain Market Mini ;)   And I can't sign off without sharing this final picture.  Barbara dropped this mini off to the folks at Riley Blake for me when she was in Salt Lake for the Cross Country State meet.   (My Father-in-Law is the coach of the Cedar CC Team) And how fun is it that the girls on the team all wanted to be in the pictures she was taking of my mini!!  Looks like future quilters in the making ;)

Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Linking up this finish to Amanda's, Sarah's, Quilt Story and Myra's :)

  1. Beautiful quilt! The colours are fabulous and I love the flower appliques. love Irish Chain quilts too. I've only made one so far, and that was a gift, so I still don't have one myself.

  2. How exciting for you! It's adorable!

  3. So cute! Coral and grey - beautiful combination!

  8. Awww...that is so cute! I love those colors. I've never made an Irish Chain, but this little quilt is making me want to make one. Another one for my "to do" list. :)

  9. What a sweet mini! I love the colors and the flower applique really add to the sweet factor.

  10. What a fun little mini: pink and grey look so good together. And the half inch grid quilting is so pretty with it, but wow! 1/2 inch!! Where are you going to put it? It won't "fit" on your wall of purple! ;-)
