Did you know we had a lunar eclipse on January 31st? I'm sure you knew about the total solar eclipse last August (unless you never came out of your sewing room that month, lol!). Well, to mark these historic events of our time, Becky Jorgensen of Patchwork Posse designed the beautiful Eclipse mini quilt for us!
This mini quilt is your chance to play with light and dark fabrics and create eclipsed stars! Can you see it above?
Here's my version! Read more about my fabric choices here.
The Eclipse mini quilt is made up of squares, half square triangles, and little flying geese. I learned a new technique for flying geese when making it too!
The Eclipse mini quilt is a tiny version of this big quilt that Becky designed to commemorate last year's total solar eclipse. Isn't it gorgeous? Find out more here.
I can't wait to see all the Eclipse mini quilts that you make! If you email me a picture, I'll be sure to include it in one of our Thursday blog posts. Share your mini quilt on Instagram too with the hashtag #sewcanshemonthlyminis so I can find it there too.
You can also find lots of mini quilt tips, tricks, and patterns on my Mini Quilt Pinterest Board.
