I just finished the quilt portion of my Umbrella Trimmings Competition mini quilt, and I thought I'd share it here as well. It's 18" square, and I was inspired by the converging corners tutorial by Film in the Fridge. Each block finished at 4.5 inches, and I hand quilted it in radiating circles using Aurifil Lana 12 wt embroidery floss.
I used a maroon color near the converged corners to bring out the reddish colors, and a neutral color in the rest of the quilt.
The back of the quilt. Not perfect, but not so terrible. That's my homemade label, I use a stamp kit and put my initials on one side and the date on the other.
I like how the Aurifil blends in with the background. I also like how the background really makes the 'converging corners' seem to float.
