Mixer Cover - Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am submitting my mixer cover to the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Regular readers have seen this project before (so skip reading, but please vote!).  The bound edges are over 80", so it's a little too large to be a mini quilt, but the piecing certainly was some of the smallest I've done.

My mom had requested a mixer cover for Christmas.  I had been wanting to try a double disappearing nine patch pattern I had found on-line.  This seemed liked the perfect opportunity to try it.  I made nine-patches from my stash of 2" squares, not realizing how tiny the final blocks would end up.  My blocks were about 4" square; the smallest parts are about 1/4" square.  Each panel of the cover was made from four blocks.



I used the instructions from the Heart of Mary tutorial for the cover itself.  It had a nice shape, plus I liked that it had a binding, so it's reversible.  Kind of silly, I guess, since I doubt if this cover will ever be reversed.  But the binding is a great accent to the whole piece.
