Mini Trail Mix and another sneak peek

I don't really need another project, but came across these orphan blocks and only needed to make 4 to have enough for this little mini Trail Mix. I'm not 100% sure this is the final set, I'll live with it for a little while.  The big one is still waiting for borders.  I really should get back to that, it is so gorgeous!!  But this little one  will get a border and then be ready to quilt - yea!!!
I worked yesterday on some of the block elements for In Full Bloom to get ready for our guild sewing party next week.  This will be a vine border that is somewhere in the middle part of the quilt.  It won't have a lot of flowers, but some (of course).
There will be log cabin blocks and double 4 patches.
There will be square in a square and 16 patch set on point.
It's overwhelming to think that these will ultimately create a quilt - but I can see the promise of the quilt that is in my head.  The fabrics are so beautiful, I sure wish I could go looking around in Edyta's scrap basket though!! :)  Can you even imagine!?!
Hope you all have a great day,
-Karen

The mini Trail Mix is something I have been interested in making ever since I saw the full version pattern in one of the quilt magazines. I think your smaller version is a good idea. It gives the effect without all the many, many pieces to sew together for the full size.

Love your Trail Mix mini. I did a block swap with some friends several years that yielded a big Trail mix quilt. Very scrappy and wonderful.

Look at all your doings - busy woman. :-)
