In my last post I mentioned that I had already used the scraps from my scrap quilt. (That still makes me chuckle.) I ended up with an extra block when I cut the scrap vortex into fourteen inch squares. I decided to add 3 inch borders and quilt it the same way as I did my other Mini Vortex. I even used the same shiny silver/gray thread. It is the Exquisite polyester embroidery thread. I really like the shimmer it gives the quilt.
Once again, I found a circle and started spiraling around it. It is a pretty fun method to use on a mini quilt. This one finishes about 20 inches square.
Another advantage to being here at my mom's house is the access to her stash. She gave me the fabric for my backing. She is so sweet.
It is a pretty Japanese screen print.
I decided to bind this in black like the border. I thought about doing a red like the big one, but the red overpowered the smaller quilt.
I always love seeing the same block quilted in a different way.
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar, including Oh Scrap. Check them out to see what other quilters have been making.
