Mini Mania Early posting

As many of you know a group of us are making mini quilts each month and this month we are going to 'show and tell' early because I have a plane to catch on the actual due date.

This month our 'leader' asked us to choose a colour each, pink green and yellow were chosen.  Our instructions were to make 12 half square triangles from each of the chosen colours, making 36 in total,  we then had to arrange into a block that we loved.

I chose this little lot of colour from the scrap box

Ready to go
Half square triangles coming up

Chain pieced this lot
Looking neat

neat and tidy
 pen and colouring pencils out and working

Not to good at this!

Played with the actual triangles.

off centre on purpose....not sure

Centred--- mmmm! better

this would make a nice big quilt

but finally settled on this.

Floating half squares 
I am very happy with this block Yeah!!!

My international 'flickr' friend D also joined us this month and showed some test blocks here, but her final design ........ 

Dee's first Mini Mania, but not her first mini quilt 

So we are truly international group now as Dee is going to join us again next month, any more takers????

I am sure if you go here you will soon find all of the May blocks.

I am off now for a while, but if I get a chance I will pop in and let you know how my holiday is going.

We have set up a flickr group if any of you would like to join?  Go and have a look here
