Brenda's Amish crazy mini, all finished!

Here's my 12 by 12 inch mini for the challenge.
It took me only two hours to make, and then nearly a week to photograph it!

I used up bits and pieces from a solid string star quilt I'm working on.
That centre piece measures about 4 by 6 inches and
contains about 50 pieces.
I used up the triangle off-cuts from making binding
and the grey sashing was left from another project.
I had enough leftover green binding to make it nearly around the quilt,
and added some yellow to finish.

You can see the quilting on the back.
I used feathers in the borders
and wobbled heavy black thread through the crazy part.
Now it's ready to gift
and hang in someone's house!
Thanks Victoria for a great challenge.
I love making something from nothing
or next to nothing.

Love the simplicity of this. I like the small pieces of yellow in the binding and triangles. I have gone back to the drawing board with mine and now piecing black and white crumbs together. I liked my first piece but will keep it for something else as it did not fit the Amish mini theme.

Very cute! Love your teeny sawtooth strip, and the feathered quilting. (Hmmmm, maybe I will make another one...)

I love the minimalist look, but there is a lot to look at here...your quilting is divine! And those touches of yellow are charming.
