Hi everyone!! My name is Cindy and I’m the gal behind Raspberry Sunshine. I design, sew, and sell handbags for a living but I am also slowly learning how to quilt. When I’m not sewing, I am usually spending time with my family and friends or tinkering with my vintage sewing machines.
I am honored to be one of today’s The Minis Blog Tour participants. If you’ve been following along, April 25th started the tour with 2 bloggers and their mini’s. Each day we’ve seen 2 more and boy they are all gorgeous! Friday we saw Kate Basti and Kate Lyons mini’s and today (besides me!) you’ll see Lucy’s mini too.
Here’s my mini! This is the first time I’ve done a mini so it’s a tad larger than 25″x 25″. Essentials II Fabrics and Dare Fabrics are featured and I used a beautiful tutorial I had bookmarked last year from Red Pepper Quilts.
The pattern is a variation of a Pickle Dish using a combination of a Quarter Star Block and a Drunkard’s Path Block. Her tutorial is perfect for any skill level so it came together rather quickly.
I would love to try these blocks again in quilt size. Imagine all the different fabrics you could use!
Now that I’m finished with this little pretty, I need to find somewhere to hang it! I also noticed as I was finishing up that I had a ton of scraps in various sizes that could be used, so I whipped up this little carrying pouch! Better yet, I’m going to raffle this away to YOU!
The finished size is about 7″ x 6″ and features all the prints used in my mini as well as my favorite go-to natural linen. I added a removable strap so you can pack it away for a trip or use it for a day out.
If you’d like to try and win this cutie, enter by leaving a comment below!
Thank you so much to Pat Bravo for letting me create my first mini with your beautiful fabrics! I enjoyed every minute. If you want to see more minis head here! Have a great Monday. xo Cindy
