Now that I've got my sewing room put together (it still needs more work, but it is mostly functional), it is time to start creating! I have a million projects that are in progress that I should work on-- instead, I'm dying to start something new. I hope to make 2 baby quilts in the near future and have them planned out (sorta) in my head. But first, it's time to make a mini-challenge quilt for the Mad City Quilt Guild's booth at Quilt Expo.
This year's theme is "My Favorite Color". That's tough!! I like many colors and had a hard time choosing. When unpacking my sewing room, I re-folded all of my yardage. Blue-Green fabric seemed to be a trend. Not quite blue, not quite green: Blugreen. =) So that's what I'll use.
The guidlines for the mini's are that they should be approximately 12" x 12" and use one colorway plus a neutral. I joke all the time that lime green is a neutral and would like to make a mini like that--but I'll be conventional. I've pulled these aquas and plan to make a 'Sparkler' mini with 2" cut squares.
Amanda Jean made a mini and it is my inspiration. I've had this quilt pinned for ages and hope to make a bigger version someday.

Sewing room progress:
Found my thread!! It was in a box marked "closet". I was able to hang this antique printer typesetting drawer and it holds my thread nicely.
My closet is still a disaster zone.
Hopefully the next post will have a completed Blugreen Mini to share.
