Non Pattern Pattern Mini Quilt

I took out the part of the binding that my walking foot leaked oil on (you can read about that incident here) and finished up my mini quilt this morning. I also ordered a new walking foot for my machine.



It measures about 11" by 14". I decided not to square up all of the sides. Opting to go with the more natural wonky edge of the block. I wasn't sure how this would work with traditional straight grain binding, but it turned out fine.

I really like this little quilt and the non pattern pattern block idea. You can read my previous two posts about this quilt here #1 and here #2. Again, this is an original idea from Victoria at The Silly BooDilly. Links to her first post about this idea can be found by following the "here #1" link.

Love how your quilt turned out. I kind of like that wonky unsquared look. Are you using it as a wallhanging?

Love it! The colors are super, the hand quilting is great, and the uneven boarder just adds to the fun of this! Yay!!!
