Today I'm sharing an older finish with you in my ongoing attempt to get all of my finished quilts on the blog. This is my Mini Alien Quilt. Mini because I made a twin sized version for one of my nephews then a baby version for my then baby nephew.
The bigger quilt was made with a pattern designed for layer cakes and jelly rolls. When I made the mini, I started with 5" squares and 1-1/2" strips.
I collected alien fabric for years, a fat quarter here and a fat quarter there, until I had 20 different ones to make these quilts.
I love how this pattern can take a bunch of mismatched fabric and make them into a cohesive quilt.
The red squares throughout the top along with the red border and binding really bring this quilt together.
This quilt has been well loved and well used which makes it all worth it, doesn't it??
