I got asked to make the rainbow squirrel by Quiet Play as one of my partner's choices.
I eagerly set out on this project by looking for other inspiration -- I didn't want rainbow and neither did my partner but she did like bright citrus colors. With bright colors as my guide I tried to think of an interesting way to make this mini special. I decided I would make multiple squirrels, one in each of her chosen citrus colors. The idea that I was missing something obvious kept nagging at me so I looked online for citrus colored artwork -- and there it was in it's Warhol nature, my future mini quilt.
I pulled out scraps from the string bins and scrap baskets first.
These squirrels went together easily and relatively quickly -- i shrank the pattern by 25% and made a 9 inch version of the block.
Then there were a pair
and then there were 4 -- I got it quilted in organic circles and ready to ship out.
Oh, so cute. It will be heading over to live with Ellyn in Texas.
In return I got this Awesome Cat mini by Martha
This was my 1st finish in the 3rd quarter and my OMG goal for July.
