Patriotic Mini Quilt!


Voting is still open for Patriotic Quilts at This-n-That Fabrics, be sure to place you vote. Just click on the vote button next to your favorite quilt. I was fortunate enough to win a gift certificate from a previous quilt contest that they had and one of the things I got was a mini pack of Old Glory Gatherings  .
I decided it was the perfect time to use it and make a mini quilt. I kept it simple and added a few appliques for fun. The basket from a Patek book, the flower from Whimsicals and the flag, I just added.

I am not sure if it is too busy? Too many of the same colors? It is pouring today, so I tried different lighting but I could not get rid of the contrasty look. I used all of the precuts, except for 4, so it shows what you can do with a mini pack.

Perfect. Just perfect! I mean your new little quilt. It will make a good companion piece to go along with the eagle quilt you just made.

I don't think it's too busy. The lighter background behind the flower and flag draws the eyes so they aren't missed. Love it, Another hit!
