New mini quilts

In my previous post, I mentioned our Valley Modern Quilt Guild challenge. We are supposed to make a piece inspired by water. The piece should reflect the modern aesthetic and may be any size. I had made 2 mini quilts using my Faux Rag technique.   Here are the pictures of the quilts.
   
                                  
You can read about these two quilts here.   Although I liked both of these minis, I think something is missing and they are not quite what the challenge is about.  I love the Faux Rag technique but I don't think it is right for the size that I decided to make.  I didn't have time to make a big quilt for this challenge and the Faux Rag technique is better for bigger size quilts.

So I decided to make another mini quilt with a different design and technique.  Here is the picture of the finished quilt.


This quilt conveys much better feelings and gives the modern aesthetic that they are asking for in the challenge.  I love the overall color and I can just feel the cold chill from the rain. 

Mini quilts are great.  They are fun and fast to make.  I'd love to hear what you think about these three mini quilts.  Do you feel the same way?  What process do you go through when you design a quilt? 

Have a blessed week!!

  1. I agree it's so fun to make a small project. One that has a quick start and finish is good for the soul! Interesting technique above. Did you razor the fabric layers, or how did you do this? It resembles the chenille technique. All are beautiful, but I agree the last is the most striking. I, too, can feel the rain.
