Another Custom Mini
Remember the mini quilt I showed you a few days ago? The same customer asked me to make another custom mini for her son. She requested a design similar to the quilt I made for a recent baby shower gift but measuring 15" x 15". And, in place of animals, she wanted cars and trains. Her son is about 4, I believe, and he likes blue with touches of other boyish colors like red, green and yellow.
I ended up making three rows of 5" squares. The borders are just 3/4" wide so the squares within are 3 1/2." The appliques had to be TINY!!
It was a sewing challenge to simplify my designs for each square to the point where I could neatly applique them. I am happy with the results though! I had fun embellishing with all sorts of buttons for wheels. I hope he loves it!
