Mini Monday: Color Bars

This colorful mini quilt top is another creation using leftover QuiltCon fabric scraps.  Apparently I ordered way more fabric than I needed for that challenge.  No worries as I love the colors.

Future Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt
This will be sent to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative once it is quilted and registered.  This will make two already for October!

Color Bars
I love making quilts for the AAQI, and it also gives me a fun excuse to play with my scraps.  The center sections of these bars are tiny pieces of scraps that some may consider too small to save, but I have a sickness that will not allow me to throw any fabric away not me ;-)

Using linen
I also made a {practice} pencil case.  The first one turned out not so gift-giving worthy so I am keeping it for myself and will make another one for giving.  The pattern is from the book Zakka Style and is another great scrap busting project.  It additionally provided a reason to use the linen I recently received from Pink Chalk.  

These two mini projects provided a fun distraction from the great granny square blocks I am currently making.  There are several other small projects I have my eye on.....

Happy Monday!


  1. I love this one too! The QuiltCon colors are wonderful.

  2. I love your Color Bars mini!! You have such a creative streak :)

  3. This is such a fun quilt! I just said, "oooh" when I saw it!


  4. I love the colors, too. That turned out awesome. I love the little pencil case. I love linen. I have some, but I think I need to get some that is not as flimsy. I may need to get that Zakka book. I keep thinking about it.
