In 2012, I had made a Hawaiian Mini Quilt.
The details and process were really interesting to me and worth traveling back in time to read about.
It's been hanging around the studio. I hung it up. I used it for a mini quilt for my American Doll Bed. After making my Heart Pillow, I knew I wanted to convert this to a pillow for my studio too!
I trimmed it down and just tossed the binding. Made a hidden zipper backing with some coordinating colored fabric I had in my stash. The birds seemed to complement it. I had some pretty green hand dyed fabric I used to do the binding/piping.
I love that now I can enjoy it in my studio and it plays along with the couch and other pillows.
And I can enjoy the hand quilting details up close.
I highly recommend converting your mini's if youve run out of space or just feel like they are cluttering up the wall. They are wonderful for pillows!!
