I LOVED this idea of mini quilts as skill builders. I went for a basic log cabin since I was short on time, and did my first scrappy binding. I need to work on my bindings, for sure, but it came together all right and I got to use yet another decorative stitch to finish the binding.
One of my flickr/internet/invisible friends calls me the straight stitching beast and this mini is no exception - lots of straight lines and I actually measured them apart instead of going free form :)
Thanks for the inspiration to go for it, amylouwho!
I'm also linking this up to Celebrate Color, my favorite contest of the season ;)
