June Monthly Mini

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, but I fear I am dangerously close to the edge! Where did June go?

A few weeks ago I opened my mail to find a delightful surprise. Knowing how much I love tiny quilts with tiny pieces, Pam Buda (Heartspun Quilts) sent me her “Tiny Baskets” pattern.

Pam’s patterns are so well written and precise, it was a cinch to follow. You can find the pattern (here) and it includes all 3 of the quilts pictured.

 I made this little one first. I have the dime on there to show you the scale (and admittedly to cover up the fact that that point didn’t quite line up!). I used one of my favorite Pam Buda fabrics for the border and binding and one of her fun stripes on the back.

I decided to call it “Hummingbird” as it would be hard to fit any other type of egg in that basket!

 The other 2 are on my “to do” list and will show up as a monthly mini in the future.

 I’m linking up all the usual mini makers. I know you will want to see what is in their basket this month!
