A Berry Mini Quilt







This berry mini quilt has been shipped this morning and hope it will arrive to the receiver's mail box soon! It truly turns out to be a lovely mini quilt.  I intended to used berry prints and mixed with contrast value prints for this mini quilt. Each squares are cut in 1.5"x1.5", so it finished at 3.5"x3.5" for each nine-patch block. For the stashing fabric, I chose {Holly Holderman's Recipe for success white on white}. I love how it shows when the sun comes in the room.

For the binding, I went with the Gypsy girl by Lily Ashbury for Moda. There's no indication of the year that's made for this print, but you can find at {Superbuzzy}. I got all the color ways. The fabric is nice quilting weight and perfect for bias binding or any patchwork making. The mini quilt is {hand-quilted} and hand bound. The backing fabric is from Anna Griffin for Windham {It has been a few years, since I have it} and I hand written {quilt label} that included receiver's name, the year made and made by whom.

The other day, my IG friend has asked me why I keep my quilting label so little contrast from the background fabric and she asked me for the thought on that. My thought to that was making the label a settle look and leave label design as part of the background piece. I didn't want the label take over the quilt itself and it is nice to discover the gentle touch that have been made to the backing of the quilt. Now, I sign the quilt label {handmade by chase}. It is rather simple, no last name, no blog name, no location indicated.

Enjoy,
