Peppercorn Mini Quilt + Fabric GiveAway

Sep 21, 2015
Pin It
This little mini quilt has quickly become one of my favorites.
First, these are MY colors.  I love the warmth and richness of the reds and oranges.
Especially, as we transition to fall weather.  It's perfect.
These Broken Star blocks grab at my heart.  Not only are the colors gorgeous, but they are pieced with an ombre rainbow in mind.  I love how the color and tone change across the blocks from pink to red to orange to peach.
I decided to quilt this mini with a 1/2" crosshatch.  I've only done this a few times.  Each time, I get about halfway through and wonder "What was I thinking?".  But then after putting in the time, it's truly worth it in the end. 
In another, what-was-I-thinking-moment, I decided to piece one of the borders with tiny squares.  I strip pieced them for the most part in the same ombre style.  I love how it came out, but I should have paid more attention to squaring it.  That little bit of waviness is driving me crazy.
Those who follow me on Instagram have requested a pattern for this mini, so I'll be working on that in the coming weeks.  I plan to have it out within a month.  If you're interested, you can order the PDF pattern here
 
 
And now for the GiveAway!  Shabby Fabrics is generously offering the Ruby Red Grapefruit Fat Eighth Bundle (the same one I used to make the Peppercorn Mini) to one lucky winner.  If you would like a chance to win, enter the giveaway below. (Giveaway ends Monday, September 27, 2015 at 11:59pm)
