I found a stitching pattern here on Fort Worth Studio's blog. (Do check it out - there are lots of cute little patterns and projects.)
I really like the texture and stability that all my straight line quilting gave to the piece. For the binding, I cut it at a very small 1 1/2" and then sewed it on at something less than 1/4".
This finished mini is 9" by 6 1/2".
I made another one without all the quilting.
For this one, I also skipped the binding by sewing front and back right sides together almost all the way around and then turning it inside out. I am not happy with the lack of stability and texture so will likely undo my binding-less treatment and add some straight line quilting.
This was quick and fun and I've got more of them in my future!
Which one do you like better?
