I will do a catch up post soon but for now, before I run out of time, I'm entering the Modern Mini Quilt Contest over at Ellison Lane Quilts. By the skin of my teeth I might add, as the linky closes in less than an hour! Eeek! I had grand plans of a super-gorgeous-awe-inspiring quilt I would make using a block that I've redesigned but after much dithering, frustration and indecision I decided to take a step back and let it go. It just wasn't working, so that meant it was time for a new plan! I had a new idea that I was really happy with! Unfortunately by the time I had the good idea, I did not have enough time to make it :(
On to Plan C! I decided to enter my Mini DSQ. Plan C Finishes at 15½ " x 20".

Last year I joined in with the Dead Simple Quilt Along over at Lily's Quilts. You can read more about it here and here. While a bit late to the party as I was trying to finish this, I did put the top together in January(not pics yet sorry!). Then because I've decided to make a "Mini Quall of Fame" (more on that later!) and because I didn't have a big enough area to lay out the big quilt, I decided to make a little one to see how the colours played together and to try out a quilting idea.

I love this effect and will be doing it on the big DSQ too. It gives a plain back a nice pop.

The big DSQ is still waiting patiently for its turn....
