Confession: Yesterday was the first time I've sewn a stitch in about 2 weeks. If you follow me on Instagram, you know my family spent the last week at Disney. The week before that, I was in full vacation-prep mode. So when I finally sat back down at my machine, I decided a mini quilt was a great project to freshen myself back up.

And just in time for Jennifer of Ellison Lane's Modern Mini Challenge. (Details a bit below.)

So, this mini quilt has kind of a funny story behind it. I feel like for awhile, every time I logged into Facebook I saw an ad for Missouri Star Quilt Co. And I really liked the star quilt block on their logo. The design, the colors - right up my alley! So, I made that star. Same colors and everything. :)

I still need to add the binding, but it's almost there. It measures 20" x 20".

Are you interested in joining in the Modern Mini fun? (And yes, there are prizes!) Challenge yourself and try something new: a new technique, a new pattern, a new quilting style, new type of fabric, etc and make a mini quilt.

The details: You can enter any mini quilt that you've made within the past 6 months. Remember, a mini quilt can be a mug rug, a mini quilt, a pillow, a table topper, etc. Only one entry per person.

Size requirements: Mini Quilt must be at least 6" x 6" and no bigger than 24" x 24".

You can enter a mini quilt made from your own design or from a pattern. Please give credit to the pattern designer in your description.
