Mini Trio

I like making mini's because I get to try out color schemes and pattern ideas without making a full-sized quilt. Sometimes the block piecing doesn't go any faster than a full-sized block, but if the block (or the quilt) doesn't turn out, I can throw it away without guilt!

These mini's are all pieced in the traditional way. I made most of my mini's before paper-piecing became popular, so I just use half-square triangle methods and away I go! This trio is hanging at my quilt guild's annual October show. It was fun to see them all together like that. When they're not at a show, they live in a drawer at my house. Too many quilts, not enough display space!

And no Virginia, these are not potholders and placemats. =)
