Pink rose - Modern Mini Challenge

I'm doing it! Today is the last day to link up an entry for the Modern Mini Challenge at Ellison Lane.

Say it With Flowers

When Jennifer announced that she was going to host the challenge again, I had a fabulous idea and it was definitely challenging. But life got I the way, as it frequently does, and I had to put my great idea (and fully drawn out pattern) away for another time. I was a little bummed out. Then, I realized I just finished a challenging mini quilt!

So, I submit my pink rose for the challenge.  It is 23.5 inches square and is from a pattern of Melinda Bula from her Book Cutting Garden Quilts .  While I put together some of this pattern previously using her fusible technique, the thread play to finish it was a completely new to me technique until a couple of weeks ago. And boy, did I find it challenging.  I just hope it is considered modern enough.

Despite the challenges, finishing this one up made me hanker for more. I've been considering her clematis and coneflower patterns. They sure would be fun to do if I could only find a spot on the calendar to squeeze them in!

Thanks for reading,

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
