Monthly mini January

“A Little More Light” - a simple start to the new year’s monthly mini quilts! I had planned on finishing a sweet little applique quilt for this month, but alas, it has turned into my “possible” February mini and this simple little quilt made with vintage feedsacks will have to suffice. It represents our trek toward Spring with later sunsets and just a bit more light each day!
I love some of these novelty prints. 

Feel free to jump in any time during my 2020 mini quilt making venture. Katy (Katy Quilts) is not one of our regular followers on this mini march, but she made many fabulous minis last year that are too good not to share (here). I follow Katy regularly and she is a very prolific quilter. 

I'm not sure how many crazy people will continue this mini madness, but check out January's gems. Thanks for strolling along together! They are all winners this month!

This little quilt speaks of Valentines with its soft pinks of early spring with fresh maple syrup and budding trees, and of course sunny blue skies! Perfect for a January mini.

This is beautiful! Great use of the feedsacks. You forgot my early finish.

Sandy said...

Very sweet and bright - love the feedsacks!
Mine is finished, just need to post.

Kyle said...

Simply adorable with all those fun feedback prints. It gives hope winter won't last forever.

Janet O. said...

This is a very happy little finish--so cute!
I am planning to join in again this year, Wendy. Sometimes this is the only thing I get done in a month, but it pushes me to finish something, and for that I am grateful. I have my mini basted and hope to have it quilted and posted before midnight--you know how that goes with me. :)

What a happy exuberant quilt - like you! I'm really hoping to try out some new-to-me ideas this year with your monthly minis. It's also so fun to see everyone's. Thanks for the linkup!

Karen said...

Interesting prints in your vintage feed sack pieces. I look forward to your possible applique mini later this month.

Very cute mini, I just love those Squirely little prints. So entertaining to look at!

Robin said...

Such a cheerful little quilt. We've had so many gray days that it's nice to see something brighter for a change. Your color placement is spot-on.

Angie said...

Great quilt idea - I know we all appreciate the returning of the light!
I know your mini quilt "madness" does not have many rules, but would you repeat the guidelines for those of us who are tempted to join this year?

Lori said...

Your little quilt is darling and is a great reminder that spring will come again...

audrey said...

Perfect quilt for this time of year! The vintage feedsacks look excellent in your little mini.:)

Randy D. said...

SOOO cute! I love it. Can't beat a rail fence. And your fabrics are fabulous! How did you pick those out from your WEALTH of feedsack fabrics??? VBG
I have my January mini (Well, it was my December mini but I didn't get it finished)... I just need to sew down the binding.
i'll post a picture!!

Raewyn said...

That's such a sweet mini Wendy. A clever use of the rail fence block, and the feedsacks are just gorgeous!.

Kaja said...

I love novelty fabrics used like this, so that there's lots to spot, even in a little quilt. This definitely has a lovely springtime feel to it.

Barbara said...

That is a perfect January mini! Love those feedsack fabrics knowing spring will be here before you know it! Thanks for linking me in!

I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website:

My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr jeffrey can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr jeffrey . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
