Three Scrappy Mini Quilts - Getting Up Close with my Quilting

All three mini quilts or table toppers quilts were created using leftover scraps from quilts.  I combined all the leftover fabrics with a lite green quilter's blenders fabric and some assorted scraps. 

I free style quilted them all differently - Meandering, Swirls, and Wiggle Lines.
I created them last week during A Week of Sewing for Barbara's Occupy Your Sewing Room. Click on the week of sewing to see what they looked like before they were quilted.  I will share how I made the little scrappy quilts tomorrow on Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday.
  
I named the first one Salad Greens.  
It is the smallest quilt and measures 141/2" by 251/2".  I quilted it with a small meandering with a twist - flowers.



I overall swirl quilted the pink and green quilt.  I named this quilt Cotton Candy. It is not a square.  It measures 23" by 26".





The last one is the Peaceful Quilt and measures 25" by 30".  I stitched a double wiggle line and a single wiggle line every other one. The wiggle lines soften the straight lines of the rectangles and squares.  



All I have left to complete on them is the all machine embroidery binding.  I love this embroidery stitch and will stitch it on all three of the quilts.
Tomorrow for Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday, I will share how I made the quilts. They are fun and easy to construct.


Enjoy your day!

Well, I love all three of your scrappy quilts but, if I have to pick a favorite design, I would say the "Cotton Candy". It just feels dreamy! Thank you for sharing at TTF!
