July Mini Mania Reveal

 The end of another month bring the reveal of
Number 6 Mini Mania Challenge
We have used the Mini Ferris Wheel tutorial that was posted some time ago on SewScatterbrained blog

 The pattern used 112 paper pieces - the squares measure 1"

 This is Ann's bright and breezy piece

 Sandy also had bright circles on a lovely taupe background

 Becca  over at Macaron Quilts has got sucked in joined us this month and has had fun and games with her hexi's. I love her dotty border

 Dee of (Deeroo Designs)- who appears to be the rebel of the group - has inverted the background and has used her low volume fabrics in the circles.

 Jo -So SewJo has some zingy colours and has appliquéd hers onto a spotty background
 And Lynda has also appliquéd her piece, this time onto a dark background. I think that this makes the whole piece pop!

 Now, I have gone for a more sludgy subtle colour-way  this month. I like the earthy tones and I have used the Moda Shirtings for my low volume background

This was another fun project but I maybe should not have left so much to do at the last minute!!

August's Mini Mania Challenge
 will be a Paper Foundation Pieced block  and will measure 12" finished.

  1. It's fun to see them all lined up together! Everyone did such a great job and it's fun to see how they're different.
    And what a fun pattern for next month! I LOVE paper piecing, I'm glad you picked a paper pieced pattern. Off to pick fabric!

  2. Best bit of the month seeing all the minis together....and don't they look good? Love the August mini, do you know how big the block is?

  3. I think we all had a lot of fun and we are all happy to see them together! Now, beautiful August is going to be a real challenge for me, let's see if I have the skills to put it together... I do love a challenge!

  4. I wish I had more time as I would love to join your group. Later, later, maybe.

  5. Thanks for the new title!;)
