I seriously didn't have a spare moment for a palette cleanser during the last couple of weeks, but it was just what I needed once that secret sewing was done, Christmas celebrated, and a short break in the day job opened up. I gathered some scraps and a penciled design from my sketch book, and set to piecing. Super simple, I went through the motions that by now are nearly second-nature. Quilting was done in several colored threads with a relaxing yet satisfying organic straight-line, and happily, I found a perfectly plaid binding in my stash.
The entire mini - measuring 17" x 17", just like the rest of my Mighty Lucky challenge quilts - took just a few hours and was like a breath of fresh air, and precisely what I expect Carolyn had in mind.
And with that, my year of Mighty Lucky Quilting Challenges is complete. Whoa. There were a few favorites and a couple where I forced myself to give it a go. But overall, it was a good experience. I'm glad I keep the projects small, and the uniformity of size helped me focus. And there are definitely some techniques that I want to revisit in future work.
