March's birthday love's bright colors and low volume. Her fav brights are lime and orange. Those colors are not quite my forte so when i picked out the fabrics I was afraid that I wouldn't like how it turned out.
But it was cool. Bright and I love it.
I used this time to try out "new-to-me" FMQ. I had so much fun sewing on this and trying new things.
|I tried for point-to-point|
|tiny match-stick and some criss-cross|
|I was trying to make the thread look like thread. lol|
|I had to make sure that she always remembers that it came from Tennessee! And I tried to write "handmade" in the blue. I'm so happy I did it in blue. lol|
|Yes, I did momentarily forget the year...in permanent ink.|
The back is this adorable quilter's newspaper...I think it is timeless treasures, but I can't say for sure.
I bound in a Sour Apple solid and I think it brings out more of the green in the mini.
