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.
