January Mini - A Little More Light


“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 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. :)

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?

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!
