Sunnyside Mini

 I finished two more small quilts yesterday. I'm avoiding other work like the plague.

Back in June, I designed this mini in EQ7 for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap.

I used Kate Spain's Sunnyside Buttercup Blaze as inspiration and pulled the rest of the fabric from my stash. The little top was done in no time.

When I decided to work on it yesterday, I went a little crazy with quilting!

 There's a pretty Kaffe print on the back. The binding was attached by machine with a little help from Elmer's washable school glue. (Watch Sharon Schamber's video for perfect competition-ready binding.)

It looks great on my front porch, if only for the photo shoot.

Last one, complete with dirty pumpkins and porch steps.

Very cute. I love pinwheel in the center.

Oooh, those are good colors from going from summer to fall, a little of both. See you tomorrow, hopefully!

I just started glue basting my bindings before attaching them by machine. Love it! And I love this mini. I'm generally not a fan of Kaffe's designs (they're beautiful, just not my thing), but the backing you chose is the perfect complement to the palette of the top. Congrats!
